Set display options for content area item via code

On the subject of “note to self” & “for future reference”, when required to setup display options programmatically for a given content area item

ContentAreaItem newContentAreaItem = new ContentAreaItem() { ContentLink = “ID of your content”};

newContentAreaItem.RenderSettings = new Dictionary<string, object>();
newContentAreaItem.RenderSettings.Add("data-epi-content-display-option",”Id of display option”);

And to get all the registered displayoptions

var options = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<DisplayOptions>();

Hope this might be useful for someone
