Orientation Not Changing Properly

[ Edited ]

The orientation is not changing properly for my app. (never happened when my app was on the playbook or on the previous version of the dev alpha). What am I missing this time? Is there something I have to declare?

 

The app does not change orientation when I turn my dev alpha from landscape to portrait or vice versa. If I minimize the app (swipe up once), change the orientation of the device, and go into the app, the text is all squeezed together.

(No, the picture is not being stretched on this forum, this is how it looks on the device.

It is a known issue (https://github.com/blackberry/BB10-WebWorks-Framework/issues/88) that orientation change does not work properly. The stretched screen is new (it used to just not work at all), but I am seeing the same issue in my app as well.

 

Looks like it is flagged to be fixed in Beta 4.

Actually,  I'm pretty sure orientation changes used to work fine for my app in the original OS that came with the dev alpha.

Re: Orientation Not Changing Properly

yes I think rory is pointing out this is a dev alpha specific issue so you dont need to worry about it too much.
