Only allow rotation on certain screens?

I've got a Webworks app where I'd like to enable rotation, but only on certain screens.

Is there a method to achieve this using webworks?

If by screens you mean Q10 vs. Z10 just release slightly different releases for each model.

Sorry, I meant different screens within the same app.

 

Ie. On screen "norotate.htm" the screen will not rotate when the user turns the phone.

But on screen "yesrotate.htm" the screen will rotate when the user turns the phone.

That's the API I was going to recommend.  When each screen is displayed, your application can choose to lock orientation in a specific layout.

 

Here's a functional sample that mimendoza wrote:
