Android :: Design A Layout In Portrait And Landscape Orientations?

Aug 29, 2010

I am finding that my layouts tend to look great in one orientation but if I change the phone's orientation, things are a mess. For example on one screen I have 6 large buttons that look great in portrait orientation but if the user changes phone orientation, those buttons get cut off in portrait.

Do I need to code two layouts for every screen - one for portrait and one for landscape? That would be such a waste of time.

Android :: Specify Different Layouts For Portrait And Landscape Orientations?

Jan 23, 2010

I've seen references to being able to specify two separate layout xml files for an activity, one for Portrait and one for Landscape. I've not been to find any information on how to do that though. How do I specify for each activity which xml file is it's portrait layout and which is the Landscape layout? Is it also possible to specify different layouts for different screen sizes? If so, how is this done?

Android : How Can I Add Portrait Layout On Top Of Landscape Camera SurfaceView?

Apr 19, 2010

My application should hold a camera preview surface. The camera is fixed to landscape view via AndroidMainfest.xml I am quite new to the Android plattform programming. Of course I don't know much about the programming tricks and workarounds yet. I did a lot of research over the last two weeks (even studied the native Camera implementation), but couldn't find a good solution so far.

Android : Is It Faster To Draw Directly On Portrait / Landscape Layout?

May 14, 2009

Presumably one layout or other must be native to the O/S and the other layout needs an expensive internal rotation + transformation in order to display in correct position.

HTC EVO 4G :: Enable Both Landscape Orientations?

Jun 14, 2010

From what I've tried, the EVO only has portrait and left-oriented (aka turn the phone on its left side) landscape viewing. Is there any way to enable right-oriented landscape viewing (aka turn the phone on it's right side)? It is very difficult to hold the phone in left-landscape when it's charging and nearly impossible to type with two hands.

Android :: Portrait / Landscape Mode Supporting

Mar 31, 2009

When we try to implement orientation in AP layer, we can set "android:screenOrientation" parameter in AndroidManifest.xml file or call "setRequestOrientation()" method of Activity class. But if I want to porting android in new HW device, how can I do? Do I need to modify the graphic driver, or just add configuration in program. (Actually I do some experiments but my AP cannot rotate) Besides, can every experts tell me when I set the "android:screenOrientation" parameter, which process will read this configuration, pass to where and which process will do the rotation?

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 :: Portrait And Landscape Layouts - Drawable Image

Nov 15, 2009

I have an app that I started in 1.6. It used images that were specific to portrait and landscape layouts. I put these in the corresponding drawable folders, for example:

drawable/image01,png
drawable-land/image01.png

when I created a new project with 2.0 it gave me the following folders. drawable drawable-hdpi drawable-mdpi drawable-lpdi. when I look at the documentation around these folders it all seems very straight forward. I assumed that you were able to create the following folders. drawable-hdpi-land drawable-mdpi-land drawable-lpdi-land

and everything would work as before. The image directory would swap automagically pulling the appropriately laid out image depending on your screen orientation. Unfortunately it does not. The SDK seems to get confused, and if I clean the project, the folders come up as poorly named.

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?
