HTC Droid Eris :: Landscape Orientation Availability

Jan 1, 2010

I am trying to figure out if landscape orientation should be available all the time, or only for certain programs and apps. My home screen does not rotate, for example. Neither does People (contacts) or my call screen when I'm using the phone. Any clarification would be appreciated.

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.

Android :: Clockwise Landscape Orientation

Jun 17, 2010

Apparently, since Froyo it's possible to display app in clockwise landscape orientation (e.g. as demoed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4YazuITS1o). However, I can't find anything related in the SDK. How can I display my app this way?

Android :: Any Way To Force Landscape Orientation?

Jun 3, 2010

I'm new to android and i was wondering if there's anyway to force landscape mode at all times. Another way of saying it, i never want to see portrait orientation on my device. Is there any settings or apps that will force landscape mode at all times (unless an app requires portrait)?

Android :: Hierarchy Viewer In Landscape Orientation

Jul 13, 2009

Is there a trick to getting the Hierarchy Viewer to work in landscape orientation, or is it completely broken? In Pixel Perfect View it shows my screen sideways (i.e. in portrait aspect ratio), but when I click on the views in the explorer area it outlines the wrong areas of the screen. It looks like the outlining assumes the display is in landscape orientation, so it outlines where the views would be if it were oriented correctly. Obviously fixing the display would be the best solution, but barring that I'm OK tilting my head if only the outlining would agree with the display. Anyone know a way around this?

HTC EVO 4G :: Unwanted Forced Landscape Orientation For Keyboard

Aug 3, 2010

I manually installed the Froyo update this morning. According to features' reports this should give me a 270 rotation. However, after choosing Automatic Rotation in settings, I found that anything with primarily text input defaults to and locks in landscape orientation. This includes google search, email, gtalk and text messaging. I prefer reading my email in portrait, so I can see more than 3 of the emails at a time. And since my text input is calibrated in portrait, landscape is just annoying me.

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.

HTC Incredible :: Landscape Orientation Using Calendar On HTC Droid Incredible?

Jun 8, 2010

I just received a Droid Incredible and I believe it's a great phone, but there is one thing on it that makes it difficult for me to fully enjoy using it. I use the calendar everyday to type meetings, appointments, and reminders. I noticed that when I try to type anything using either calendar (HTC or Google's calendar), the portrait orientation is the only option that is offered. I know that the landscape keyboard is available for everything else (text messages, internet, etc.), but I'm forced to type all of my calendar appointments using the portrait keyboard. This slows down my typing whenever I use the calendar. I tried using the voice to text option to input text, but it is not always accurate. Is there an option under calendars that I did not find that makes it possible for me to type in the landscape orientation or do I need to download an app that will make it possible to type in the calendar using the landscape keyboard?

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 :: 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 :: 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.

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 :: 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?
