The Error component visually indicates validation issues or errors in the associated components and provides information on how to correct them.

Error Overview

The Error component is used to display error messages or indicate validation issues related to a form field or to a associated component. It provides visual cues to the user and points out an error or problem with the entered data. The Error component appears below the problematic field and includes a descriptive message explaining the error and possible corrective actions. It plays a crucial role in enhancing the usability and accessibility of forms by helping users identify and address validation errors effectively.

By default, the Error can be set as part of the Telerik and Kendo UI Form component. Custom components that do not contain form element require setting additional properties.
