I am having trouble passing fieldOverrides parameter for DynamicForm. Currently i am trying

        fieldOverrides = {"sampleColumn" : {(peoplePicker)}}
        onSubmitted={async (listItemData : any) => { console.log(listItemData); }}

but it shows

(property) fieldOverrides?: {
    [columnInternalName: string]: (fieldProperties: IDynamicFieldProps) => React.ReactElement<IDynamicFieldProps>;
Key value pair for fields you want to override. Key is the internal field name, value is the function to be called for the custom element to render

Type 'string' is not assignable to type '{ [columnInternalName: string]: (fieldProperties: IDynamicFieldProps) => React.ReactElement<IDynamicFieldProps>; }'.ts(2322)
IDynamicFormProps.d.ts(46, 5): The expected type comes from property 'fieldOverrides' which is declared here on type 'IntrinsicAttributes & IntrinsicClassAttributes<DynamicForm> & Readonly<IDynamicFormProps> & Readonly<...>'

if "sampleColumn" is my internal column name for people type column,what should be the coorect way of passing it.

Here is a sample that shows how to set the fieldOverrides property.

import * as React from 'react';
import styles from './SpfxDyanmicForm.module.scss';
import { ISpfxDyanmicFormProps } from './ISpfxDyanmicFormProps';
import { escape } from '@microsoft/sp-lodash-subset';
import { DynamicForm } from "@pnp/spfx-controls-react/lib/DynamicForm";
import { IDynamicFieldProps } from '@pnp/spfx-controls-react/lib/controls/dynamicForm/dynamicField';

export default class SpfxDyanmicForm extends React.Component<ISpfxDyanmicFormProps, {}> {

  public render(): React.ReactElement<ISpfxDyanmicFormProps> {
    return <div className={styles.spfxDyanmicForm}>
        context={this.props.context as any}
        // fieldOverrides={{"Description": this.renderDescription}} 
        fieldOverrides={{"Title": this.renderTitle, "Description": this.renderDescription}} 

  private renderTitle = (fieldProperties: IDynamicFieldProps): React.ReactElement<IDynamicFieldProps> => {
    return <div>Title</div>

  private renderDescription = (fieldProperties: IDynamicFieldProps): React.ReactElement<IDynamicFieldProps> => {
    return <div>Description</div>
