Can the screen be used in Landscape mode?

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Has anyone worked out if the screen can be used in Landscape mode?

I need to write a quick test programme to see if we can force this into landscape from code but wondering if anyone has done this already and can confirm it works?

I have a design from a previous Olimex board I want to port to the M3 and T3 and it would save me having to do new screen layouts in portrait if this was possible.
Is Qt involved?

No, Android with native coding in Android Studio.
The most easy way to achieve this is by using one of the many screen rotation apps from the play store, for example that one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... trol&hl=en

If you create your own app in Android Studio you can also mark your Activity to be landscape only in the manifest. See https://developer.android.com/guide/top ... tml#screen for more info.
Alternatively this can also be done by code: https://developer.android.com/reference ... tation(int)
Not required. I rebuild the kernel and Android OS from source so now it boots in landscape mode.

I also added GSM modem support so now also have data coverage outside WiFi areas.
That's certainly the easiest :lol:
