landscape orientation for Qt App


        I need to know how to set landscape orientation for BB10 Qt app.I already tried,

                       QDesktopWidget *desktop = QApplication::desktop();






                       setAttribute(Qt::WA_LockLandscapeOrientation, true);


         and set the orientation in bar-descriptor value as " landscape" but the app is resizing according to the portrait screensize.

Re: landscape orientation for Qt App

Normally you would put something like this,


        OrientationSupport.supportedDisplayOrientation = SupportedDisplayOrientation.DisplayLandscape;

 But I'm unsure what to do for a Qt only project.

If you've been helped click on Like Button, if you've been saved buy the app. Smiley Happy

Re: landscape orientation for Qt App


Please post your bar-descriptor.xml. Does it contain this section?



If you can create a simple test project reproducing this issue, it will be easier for us to help.
