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?

May 5, 2010

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.

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 :: 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.

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.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Home Screen Orientation To Go Into Landscape Mode?

Feb 19, 2010

I searched for this but couldn't find a solution. Is there anyway to get the home screen and subsequent side screens to go into landscape mode? I've seen some other Android Phones/Tablets doing this and would like to be able to do so. Or does anyone know if this will be an option in the 2.1 update? I heard that the Droid used to do this, and then some update messed it up, but then saw it going into landscape mode on the video they posted today of the Droid running 2.1.

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?
