Android :: Portrait Vs Landscape Orientation Using Sensor

Dec 18, 2009

I'm trying to detect landscape vs portrait orientation with the following:

public void onSensorChanged(SensorEvent event) { float pitch = event.values[2];
if (pitch <= 45 && pitch >= -45) { // portrait }
else if (pitch < -45) { // landscape }
else if (pitch > 45) { // landscape } }

Anyone have something more robust? It works pretty well, except if the phone is in a landscape orientation and the user starts to 'flatten' it out, starts thinking it's in the portrait orientation again.

Android :: Startup Emulator With Landscape Orientation Instead Of Portrait

Jun 19, 2010

As u know, since android 1.6, there are not dirs on dirs like HVGA-L. Instead, there is only one dir like HVGA. That is, HVGA-P and HVGA-L are merged into one dir, HVGA. So, only HVGA can be selected and by default the emulator is started with portrait mode. Though I can press CTRL+F11/F12 to switch it to landscape mode, I do not like it. What I want is to start the emulator with default mode of landscape. Would anyone know how to do it?

Android :: Configuration Changed / Orientation From Portrait To Landscape?

Nov 10, 2010

While working on orientation change I have found that the onConfigurationChanged is not getting called when changing the orientation from portrait to landscape.But when I am changing from landscape to portrait the method is getting called. Is it the correct behavior because the onConfigurationChanged should by called whenever we are changing the orientation. (android:configChanges="orientation")? I have also found one strange behavior or error, When we are changing from portrait to landscape orientation the string value is displayed correctly(automatically by android system) but when in am changing the orientation from landscape to portrait the same string is displayed(i.e the string in landscape mode).The expected behavior is the string id specified in the portrait mode should be displayed.Is it an platform bug or something wrong in my code/programming.

Android :: Screen Orientation Landscape Back To Portrait Not Working

Mar 20, 2010

I've racked my brain for hours over this issue. I have created a main.xml and designed one for the res/layout-land (landscape) format and another one for portrait in res/layout. When I rotate the emulator (ctrl-F11), my app rotates properly to landscape using the correct main.xml, but a subsequent rotation back to portrait just keeps the landscape mail.xml. This was done in a 2.0 AVD.. Out of desperation I downloaded the new Sample Code for Multiple Resolutions and had to create a new 2.1 AVD, to my surprise rotation with this app works correctly as expected. So I then decided to try my app on the 2.1 AVD and it works perfectly. So, is this a Bug in a 2.0 AVD or is there something special I need to be doing for < 2.1 SDK versions?

Is there a screen orientation lock feature? I haven't seen it mentioned. In fact a search only turned up mention of it as a hardware button on the iPad. This would be great for using it while lying down, reclining, in the car.

HTC EVO 4G :: Phone Stuck In Landscape Mode / Not Returning To Portrait At All

Jul 6, 2010

I'm responding to an email and I rotate the phone to landscape mode. Once completed, I turn the phone upright and it remained in landscape mode. The only way to get it back was to hit the menu button. I rotated to landscape a few minutes later and now its stuck in that mode, and won't return to portrait at all. I tried removing the battery to no avail.

Motorola Droid :: Do You Use Landscape Or Portrait Mode?

Jan 22, 2010

Do you use landscape or portrait mode? And which keyboard do you use to post, virtual or real, since the virtual one hides the screen for some reason? I posted this from my Droid, just to prove to myself that I could real keyboard, big hands no problemo. Few typos, but easily fixed. No worse than I do on a life-size keyboard at home.Droid looks to be about the size of a busines card next to my big thumb. I can still somehow peck the keys fairly quick.

Motorola Droid :: Typing In Portrait Vs Landscape Mode

Dec 9, 2009

I discovered something unusual today. I've been using a lot of the physical keyboard, especially for long winded texts and e-mails. I have tried and tried to get used to the landscape on-screen keyboard to no avail. I've tried Better Keyboard (and yes, it's better), and the HTC keyboard (that unfortunately doesn't fill the screen). They both have their benefits, but I cannot accurately and consistently type out a message on any of them. My problems: If I type too fast, half of the letters don't register. I've tried pressing harder, using a lighter touch, neither had any affect. I can't get used to the position I need to have my thumb in to actually register clicking certain letters on the keyboard. I always think I've got it, but then I look up at what I just typed (I find myself staring at the keys I'm pressing to make sure they're the right ones) and it is complete gibberish. Where I'm going with this, anyways, is the portrait keyboard. I used it a few times today just out of laziness, I didn't feel like turning the screen or opening up the device to use the physical. I noticed something unusual; I don't make the same mistakes on this tiny little keyboard, and I can actually type relatively quickly. My sentences weren't coming out meaningless, and I wasn't seeing unregistered presses. So my question to you is this - has anybody else noticed similar problems? I don't really think it's a fault of the phone. I think I'm just not used to on-screen keyboards (never used one before) and thus cannot type well on it. I'm hoping that - at some point - a multi-touch enabled keyboard comes out, because I feel like some of my problems are due to hitting two keys in rapid succession, and having one or both not register. Until then, I will continue to practice with it, but I just can't figure out why I can type on the tiny portrait keyboard and not on the full landscape version.

Is there a way to have swype for portrait mode but the regular htc touch keyboard for landscape mode when the phone is tilted on its side? Also how do I make the swype keyboard go away when editing a text box? There is a little button on the htc touch keyboard to minimize it but I don't see one on the swype keyboard.

HTC Droid Eris :: Way To Get A Reverse Landscape Orientation?

Dec 18, 2009

I just got my eris yesterday (posting with it now), and I am finding typing in landscape quite uncomfortable while headphones are plugged in (i listen to a lot of music). The plug is vertical and doesn't allow me to grip the phone naturally. So, I was wondering if there was a simple way to get the reverse of landscape view. As in the eris's physical buttons would be to the left while typing instead of the right.

HTC Droid Eris :: Landscape Orientation Of Keyboard

Feb 10, 2010

I just got my Droid Eris. It was working fine to go back and forth between landscape and upright, until I calibrated the G-sensor. Now I'm not sure what's going on. I'm not sure if I've done the calibration correctly (I assume you just sit it upright on a flat surface?) or what. It will randomly go into landscape mode, but then I can't get it back upright unless I go to the home screen.
