1 field.api.php hook_field_widget_error($element, $error, $form, &$form_state)

Flag a field-level validation error.


$element: An array containing the form element for the widget. The error needs to be flagged on the right sub-element, according to the widget's internal structure.

$error: An associative array with the following key-value pairs, as returned by hook_field_validate():

  • error: the error code. Complex widgets might need to report different errors to different form elements inside the widget.
  • message: the human readable message to be displayed.

$form: The form structure where field elements are attached to. This might be a full form structure, or a sub-element of a larger form.

$form_state: An associative array containing the current state of the form.
