Firewall Settings not shown correctly - enhance / bug


Just installed v1.1 of this tool on Hyper-V 2012 Core.
Works great but I wanted to turn all the firewall options OFF (Domain, Private and Public networks) as i'm only using it on a test environment that has limited access.
Obviously I went to the Firewall section of this tool (Control Panel | Firewall | Firewall Settings) and clicked all the radio buttons to turn off each location.
Once applied the statuses still showed a green tick shield and the settings stayed on the 'Turn on' radio button.

I think they actually worked though (I went in an used 'netsh advfirewall set domainprofile state off' to turn that off - I should use powershell but...).
If you look at the Firewall status against the green shield they go from Enabled: True to Enabled: False (or vice versa)... it's the only way to actually see it's worked.

Additionally, I notice that if you choose to expand each network shield using the downarrow button, you can only show two at a time, not all three...

Is it possible to implement a Red, crossed, shield and ensure the radio buttons reflect the status too?

Kind Regards

And a pic of the shields showing green even though they are off.
Only allowed one attachment for some reason...

I will look into this. Thanks for the report.

Enabling, disabling, and display fixed in 1.1.1.

The display issue will have to wait. All three settings can't be displayed at once due to windows size limitations. I don't really like the way that dialog looks at all and am planning an entire revamp in 2.0.
