highlight whole row div red while error instead of just input field [php codeigniter]

I have a form which is posted via php and if I get a error it highlights only the input field red. What I would like to do or know if there is a way to do is highlight the whole div field which contains the select field and everything and show that this whole div has a error.
Here is my html code.

<div class="form-group">
<div class="<?php if(form_error('fullname')!= null){echo ' has-error';} ?>">
<label class="col-md-4 control-label">
<?php echo lang("full_name"); ?>
<div class="col-md-8">
<input type="text" name="fullname" class="form-control" value="<?php if (isset($userinfo['Fullname'])) {echo $userinfo['Fullname'];} ?>" placeholder="<?php echo lang(" fullname "); ?>">

Right now it only highlights input field but I want it to highlight the whole div form-group.


Since you are using bootstrap, you could try this. Please change

<div class="form-group">


<div class="form-group alert alert-danger">
