Summary0027779: Android Keystore gadget is not user friendly
DescriptionMark Alexander is going through Android setup and finding lots of niggles here and there.

The Android Keystore gadget is badly designed.
It has a file selector to select the keystore file, but it also requires fields to be filled in *then* the import button pressed to actually save the information and use the keystore.
If you skip that step and go to Show Hash, it will give a JDK error instead.
When you do click Import, it gives no feedback as to it being successful either.
Steps To ReproduceAttempt to use the Android keystore gadget
Additional InformationCouple of bugs here:
1. No in-IDE guidance as to what to do after selecting the keystore from the file gadget
2. Wrong error message if you click Show Keyhash without importing keystore information.
3. No feedback on successful keystore import
4. General design needs reworked - was copied straight from 1.x

While (4) is likely a separate bug in it's own right, 1-3 are easy enough to do and would improve the usage of the keystore gadget immensely
