support orientation

Hi to all...

i am creating an app in playbook , in which i need to support landscape and portrait both view.

i have created my all views in mxml. 

by doing some task i am able to access an event which tells that screen is getting change 

but now i am facing problem to get the width and height of the mxml view.

because if oreintation is 90 degree my code works perfectly. but if u will make it as 180 it will be messed.

please tell me how can i get the display width & height by which i will be able to understand which view should be load.

my code ..  

protected function view1_initializeHandler(event:FlexEvent):void


stage.addEventListener(StageOrientationEvent.ORIENTATION_CHANGE ,onOrientationChange);

protected function onOrientationChange(eventSmiley FrustratedtageOrientationEvent):void

Re: support orientation

In your function onOrientationChange you could just listen for stage.stageWidth and stage.stageHeight to know the width and height currently. A better solution would be to check the event.afterOrientation value.
