Force Storm Orientation:

Hey there!

   Newbie question here, sorry if this has been answered. I want to programatically force the Storm to be in Portrait or Landscape mode. I scanned through a lot of docs here and it all seems to point to the fact that I have to actually turn the Storm itself, not something I was looking for. Any help appreciated.

Re: Force Storm Orientation:

You can force the direction using (eg. LANDSCAPE):

        Ui.getUiEngineInstance().setAcceptableDirections( Display.DIRECTION_LANDSCAPE );
