Within the Native SDK go to your bar-descriptor.xml file and click under the tab application > orientation > portrait/landscape as desired.
Within XML file the code is:

If you right click on the bar-descriptor.xml, then you select Open With. Select the Blackberry Application Descriptior Editor. The menu remembers the last way that you opened the file and uses that the next time. You should see a dot beside the one that will be used with a double click.
Then go to the Application tab when it opens. There is where you will find Orientation.
