  /**
   * Files an error against a form element.
   *
   * When a validation error is detected, the validator calls this method to
   * indicate which element needs to be changed and provide an error message.
   * This causes the Form API to not execute the form submit handlers, and
   * instead to re-display the form to the user with the corresponding elements
   * rendered with an 'error' CSS class (shown as red by default).
   *
   * The standard behavior of this method can be changed if a button provides
   * the #limit_validation_errors property. Multistep forms not wanting to
   * validate the whole form can set #limit_validation_errors on buttons to
   * limit validation errors to only certain elements. For example, pressing the
   * "Previous" button in a multistep form should not fire validation errors
   * just because the current step has invalid values. If
   * #limit_validation_errors is set on a clicked button, the button must also
   * define a #submit property (may be set to an empty array). Any #submit
   * handlers will be executed even if there is invalid input, so extreme care
   * should be taken with respect to any actions taken by them. This is
   * typically not a problem with buttons like "Previous" or "Add more" that do
   * not invoke persistent storage of the submitted form values. Do not use the
   * #limit_validation_errors property on buttons that trigger saving of form
   * values to the database.
   *
   * The #limit_validation_errors property is a list of "sections" within
   * $form_state->getValues() that must contain valid values. Each "section" is
   * an array with the ordered set of keys needed to reach that part of
   * $form_state->getValues() (i.e., the #parents property of the element).
   *
   * Example 1: Allow the "Previous" button to function, regardless of whether
   * any user input is valid.
   *
   * @code
   *   $form['actions']['previous'] = array(
   *     '#type' => 'submit',
   *     '#value' => t('Previous'),
   *     '#limit_validation_errors' => array(),       // No validation.
   *     '#submit' => array('some_submit_function'),  // #submit required.
   *   );
   * @endcode
   *
   * Example 2: Require some, but not all, user input to be valid to process the
   * submission of a "Previous" button.
   *
   * @code
   *   $form['actions']['previous'] = array(
   *     '#type' => 'submit',
   *     '#value' => t('Previous'),
   *     '#limit_validation_errors' => array(
   *       // Validate $form_state->getValue('step1').
   *       array('step1'),
   *       // Validate $form_state->getValue(array('foo', 'bar')).
   *       array('foo', 'bar'),
   *     ),
   *     '#submit' => array('some_submit_function'), // #submit required.
   *   );
   * @endcode
   *
   * This will require $form_state->getValue('step1') and everything within it
   * (for example, $form_state->getValue(array('step1', 'choice'))) to be valid,
   * so calls to self::setErrorByName('step1', $message) or
   * self::setErrorByName('step1][choice', $message) will prevent the submit
   * handlers from running, and result in the error message being displayed to
   * the user. However, calls to self::setErrorByName('step2', $message) and
   * self::setErrorByName('step2][groupX][choiceY', $message) will be
   * suppressed, resulting in the message not being displayed to the user, and
   * the submit handlers will run despite $form_state->getValue('step2') and
   * $form_state->getValue(array('step2', 'groupX', 'choiceY')) containing
   * invalid values. Errors for an invalid $form_state->getValue('foo') will be
   * suppressed, but errors flagging invalid values for
   * $form_state->getValue(array('foo', 'bar')) and everything within it will
   * be flagged and submission prevented.
   *
   * Partial form validation is implemented by suppressing errors rather than by
   * skipping the input processing and validation steps entirely, because some
   * forms have button-level submit handlers that call Drupal API functions that
   * assume that certain data exists within $form_state->getValues(), and while
   * not doing anything with that data that requires it to be valid, PHP errors
   * would be triggered if the input processing and validation steps were fully
   * skipped.
   *
   * @param string $name
   *   The name of the form element. If the #parents property of your form
   *   element is array('foo', 'bar', 'baz') then you may set an error on 'foo'
