Description

A device can be setup to report its attributes by "Subscribing" to reports of the device.
When doing so in the tester interface (pushing the SUBSCRIBE button), a ConfigureReporting command is send to the device and the SUBSCRIBE button is changed to a UNSUBSCRIBE button.
Pushing this UNSUBSCRIBE button is not disabling reporting, but is removing the listener to the reports; the device keeps sending it's reports, they are no longer displayed in the tester window.
To force the device to stop sending reports, the Max value has to be set to 0xFFFF (and push SUBSCRIBE or UNSUBSCRIBE).
I find this behavior confusing. In my opinion a better way to handle this would be to have only one button (CONFIGURE REPORTING), and use the value of the parameters (MAX, MIN) to enable or disable reporting.
