Android :: Force Screen To Switch Between Landscape / Portrait

Feb 1, 2009

Is there a way to pro grammatically force the screen to change between landscape and portrait mode? I want to allow the user to choose a menu item to rotate the screen, instead of relying on pulling out the keyboard. I am looking for something like activity.change Screen Orientation, but couldn't find such a thing in the API docs.

Android :: Switch To Landscape Then Back Portrait - Inflate Exception

Jul 23, 2010

I've met a very strange issue that my app will crash if user first switch to landscape, then back to portrait. I found that Activity.setContentView() will throw an inflate exception. It said:
android.view.InflateException: Binary XML file line #29: Error inflating class <unknown>

This crash will happens on Android 1.6/2.1/2.1-update1, but doesn't happen in 2.2 Froyo. In Froyo, everything works fine. If the XML I used is invalid, it should happens every time when I try to inflate. But why it's okay on the first time of running and switching to landscape? This also only happens on some devices. For example, there two HTC G1 with same software installed on it and has the same configuration, one has this issue and the other one works fine.

HTC EVO 4G : CM6 RC2 Crashapaloosa - When Switch From Portrait To Landscape View

Jul 30, 2010

Flashed the CM6 RC1 Rom and have been running smooth as glass. Suddenly, it is crashapaloosa on me. I am betting it is the hinky Flash 10.1 that is doing it. It happens mostly when I switch from portrait to landscape view.

Also getting odd messages like "Unable to Log In". Not sure what it is logging into but apparently it can't. Anyone else having issues? Will try dumping Flash 10.1, also will try shutting down SetCPU and see if those don't help. Ah bugs ;-)

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?

Motorola Droid X :: APP - ROOT - Keyboard - Keyboard Manager - Dual Keyboard - Portrait - Landscape Switch

Nov 10, 2010

I tried it and it works so far.

Dev = ne0fhyk from XDA.

From the XDA forum: Link to app page = [APP][ROOT/Keyboard] Keyboard Manager - Dual keyboard: Portrait/landscape switch - xda-developers

Verbage:

Keyboard Manager allows you to customize what keyboard (input method) appear on input based on your phone orientation.
It displays the keyboards you have enabled on your android device, and let you select one per orientation (landscape/portrait).
As your phone switch orientation, the app automatically switch the keyboard.

Requirements:
- Rooted android device (app was tested on Samsung captivate 2.1)
- Root Explorer app, or similar app that allows you to edit the permissions of a file.

To install:
1- Download the app (KeyboardManager.apk) on your device sdcard.
2- Using Root Explorer, move the apk file to /system/app
3- Using Root Explorer, edit the file permissions like below:
-- User: 'Read/Write' checked
--Group: 'Read' checked
--Others: 'Read' checked
4- Exit Root Explorer

The app should be visible in your launcher as 'Keyboard Manager'

Update:
- Added option to disable notification icon
-' start on boot' feature is disabled because it's not yet complete and tested... Sorry for the confusion

Bugs:
-On certain applications (i.e: Messaging on Samsung Captivate), the input window occasionally freeze on orientation switch. Exiting the app, and resuming should fix it.

The app is still in development.

Android :: Way To Force Screen Orientation To Landscape Right As Of Froyo?

Sep 24, 2010

We currently use Activity.setRequestedOrientation(ActivityInfo.SCREEN_ORIENTATION_x) to set (and 'freeze') the orientation of our app. Froyo now supports two landscape modes tho and we'd like to allow our users to orient the app to 'landscape right' ... ie, the orientation obtained by turning a device naturally oriented to Portrait 90 degrees clock wise.

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?
