FieldValidationException If validation errors are found, a FieldValidationException is thrown. The 'errors' property contains the array of errors, keyed by field name, language and delta.

Use it as in the example :

        $errors[$field_name]][$langcode][$delta][] = array(
          'error' => 'field_example_invalid',
          'message' => t('Color must be in the HTML format #abcdef.'),

Beware of the typo in the first line (superfluous square bracket).

The correct code is:

[$field_name][$langcode][$delta][] = array(
'error' => 'field_example_invalid',
'message' => t('Color must be in the HTML format #abcdef.'),
