Accepted Solution

Orientation mode on smartphone

Should the element <rim:smileysurprised:rientation mode="portrait" /> in config.xml work on smartphone or is it only available for the Playbook?

Re: Orientation mode on smartphone

I'm having the same issue on OS7 (9380)

 

<rim : orientation mode="portrait" /> (without the spaces) is not working for some reason
