Nexus :: Rotate 1 Way / Landscape Works / Rotate Other Way / It Doesn't
Jul 1, 2010
I just bought the Nexus One unlocked for AT&T and really like it. 1 wierd thing is that when I rotate the phone counter clockwise, the screen goes to landscape just fine; but when I rotate it clockwise it does not go to landscape "the other way". And, if I'm holding the phone 'normally' and rotate it 180 degrees ('upside down') it doesn't follow.My youngest daughter delights in telling me that her iPhone does this with no problem. What's up with that?
I have a HTC Magic (Rogers Canada).And, I see how the Dream (G1) rotates the home screen. can the Magic do that as well? Also, anybody know if it's possible to rotate the screen to the right and not just to the left? Shouldn't the acceleromater detect all the different rotated modes (even upside down?). that'd be cool
As we know, we can rotate a bitmap through 2 ways. The 1st way is: Matrix mt = new Matrix(); mt. postRotate (degree);Bitmap bitmap = CreateBitmap(src, 0, 0, w, h, mt, true); canvs.drawBitmap(bitmap, 0, 0, paint); In this way, we always need create new bitmap for every rotation, it is not good way for high performance game or app.The 2nd way is: canvas.save(); canvas.rotate(degree); canvas.drawBitmap(bitmap, 0, 0, paint); canvas.restore();In this way, we avoid creating new bitmap frequently, but the rotation bitmap is distortion, the bitmap quality is worse than first way.So, Is there 3rd way to rotate bitmap with high performance and good quality? Your any comments are really appreciated!
I know if you change a android phone from portrait to landscape sometimes the app relays its self out on the screen.. so how do I simulate rotating a phone with the AVD? On the Blackberry emulators there's a button in the menu to turn the phone, but I can't find it or any option on the Android ones?
Got very annoyed in the car earlier. Running Google Navigation, and couldn't get it to go landscape.Experimenting tonight, it seems it'll only go portrait with the power connector at the bottom, or landscape with the power connector on the right.Try the other way and it won't flip Means I've got to either move the mount on the windscreen or suffer the cable being diagonal across the dash.Not the end of the world I know, just seems like an oversight.
I've had my Eris for a week now, first it quit playing videos, and won't animate weather radar, now it won't rotate to landscape mode, this makes typing with my fat fingers tough, anybody have any cures or solutions?
Home screen used to do landscape immediate and always. Now it doesn't do landscape at all unless I slide the keyboard out and it pops into landscape immediately. Then when I close the keyboard it goes back to portrait even when I'm holding the phone in landscape. Not sure how to fix this, help please.
I have implemented rotation of a custom view which runs perfectly on Emulator,but the screen goes blank without any error. When i disable the animation in code[commenting the lines] the view appears on device. Please help me out. if there is any fox for this.
My hero doesn't rotate in calendar entry mode.I thought it did last week when I purchased it.Has something changed or do I just remember wrong?I've been starting to get accustomed to entering events from the phone, but the keypad is too difficult for me in portrait mode. Is there a way to force it into landscape when doing calendar entries?
Just got my lovely new phone today but I can't get all the screens to rotate.The box that says 'Auto-rotate screen' is checked but, on some screens, nothing's happening.What am I doing wrong? Or does it only do it on certain screens?
My EVO screen won't rotate back to portrait from landscape. Auto rotate is on.That labyrinth game teeter doesn't work either, the ball only moves side to side not up and down.Everything is running crazy slow too.
I am extending the normal android.widget.ProgressBar.This rotates it fine, however I am having alot of sizing issues. It seems as though I have to set the width and the height of the control to be the same thing or else I run into alot of clipping issues. Basically, I want to have a progress bar that, once rotated, is 50dip wide and fills the screen vertically. Can anyone think of a way to do this? Also, it doesn't seem to be actually drawing the progress properly, but I will revisit that once I get the clipping sorted out.
I want to rotate my view in specified degree, for example 30 degrees, 45 degrees.There is no rotate method in view class, I was trying to rotate its inside canvas, but the view doesn't rotate accordingly.
i develop an map application. One feature from my map is, it can rotate.I already develop map that can rotate using orientation sensor. But now, i need to develop it without sensor.So, it's possible to get an angle from 2 coordinates (last position and current position )with atan2 and use it to rotate the map ?
I'm fairly new to android development - I'm having trouble finding documentation on how to disable the accelerometer/auto-rotate feature for an app (i.e. when you turn the phone, everything 'corrects' changing the layout). Is it possible to disable in the emulator?
I have been playing around with Timeriffic (great app!) and wondered if anyone knows if there is a way to have Auto Rotate of screen to not be enabled say, from 23:00 until 7:00?Even a separate (freeware) app would be okay as I don't see Timeriffic doing this? PS - Is there a way to save/export timeriffic settings/personal saved options?
I have a Motorola DroidX phone and since yesterday, my screen will not rotate.I've gone into settings, (made sure that 'auto-rotate' is checked).I've also powered down the phone, taken the battery outthen powered back up.Still no rotation of the screen.
Are there any 3rd party apps out there that rotate the screen 180 degrees? I can't seem to find any.Most times, I find it easier to use my Cliq if it is upside down (such as listening to music and charging.)
