Setting the device orientation

Hi,

 

How do you set the device orientation in PlayBook?

 

if I try this is the only orientation that I can use (landscape left, all others break the program):

CCDirector::sharedDirector()->setDeviceOrientation(kCCDeviceOrientationLandscapeLeft);

Re: Setting the device orientation

You can set it in the bar descriptor if you only want to set one orientation for your application.

  <autoOrients>true</autoOrients>
  <aspectRatio>landscape</aspectRatio> 

 Cheers,

Jon

Re: Setting the device orientation

It works like a charm! Thanks for that!

 

I'll add just some aditional information for future searchers:

 

<initialWindow>
        <systemChrome>none</systemChrome>
        <transparent>false</transparent>
        <autoOrients>false</autoOrients>
          <aspectRatio>portrait</aspectRatio>
    </initialWindow>

Re: Setting the device orientation

it has nothing to do with the orientation. I writed that just to make clear in what section the orientation tags go.
