Provide clear direction on database unlock dialog #2445
Related request: Improve error message for database unlock dialog
If the user checks the "Key File" Checkbox in a case in which there is no key file (and if they enter some inappropriate file in the "Key File" field), the following error message is displayed: "Unable to open the database. Wrong key or database file is corrupt."
Not exactly sure. Something like "Wrong key or database file is corrupt or Key File method falsely selected." Or: If the software can actually identify that the entered key file is not really a key file, throw an extra error message dedicated just to this specific error.
Do key files have a specific format or are otherwise identifiable by the program? If yes, modify the Key File Browsing functionality.
In the Key File field, the user can only select a file of an appropriate format. Particularly, the user cannot select a .kdbx file.
