Maybe you could provide a screenshot again to clarify what your
I can only see two states:
* allowed or
* not allowed
to do something, which for me is a checkbox.
My guess is that you see it in the sense of the action of setting the
value. Then it males sense for this process of
* setting the value to on
* unsetting the value to off or
* leaving it as it is.
For this you'd still need to display the current status of the value
_on_ or _off_ which again is a checkbox.
- don't make the user think, stick with known practices
