Dear Santa RIM, I have a wish....

[ Edited ]

Hi!

 

I've just started developing using Cascades but unfortunatelly on notebook's screen it is really hard to work with simulator.

 

If there is no way to switch VMWARE to 1:2 zoom mode then I have a big wish:

 

PLEASE, GIVE US AN OPTION TO UPGRADE OUR DEV PLAYBOOKS TO BETA OS CONTAINED IN BB 10 DEV ALPHAS!!!!!!

 

I DON'T CARE ABOUT SMARTPHONE FUNCTIONALITY, JUST WANT TO TEST/DEBUG CASCADES ON REAL DEVICE. :Beta1:

 

OK, I had to say it. I feel better now.

 

Regards,

 

SOAman

I can confirm that the next release of the simulator will have the ability to zoom.  If you have any other feedback please let met me know.

 

Thanks,

Daryl

Yes - go to the very bottom right-hand corner of the simulator (while your mouse is captured by it) and click once. You may have to wait a little bit, but you will see the simulator change to landscape mode.

There is! Just click the bottom-right bezel (black border) and the simulator will rotate from portrait (default) to landscape.

 

This is documented in the Requirements section undeer "Switching between landscape and portrait modes":
