Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-1841) orientationchange event issues in iOS 4.3
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2012 22:35:13 GMT
Shazron Abdullah created CB-1841:

             Summary: orientationchange event issues in iOS 4.3
                 Key: CB-1841
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: iOS
    Affects Versions: 2.2.0
            Reporter: Shazron Abdullah
            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah

Going forward, we are not supporting iOS 4.3, but leaving this for the knowledgebase. This
is from someone that emailed me:

The problem is as follows: under 4.3 the orientation/fire orientation event is kind of screwed
up (I’m using it with Sencha 2.0 and it works fine on 5.0, 5.1, 6.0).
Starting the app in Portrait mode will correctly identify it as portrait… when you den flip
to either side into landscape mode the orientation change is not fired and the app ‘thinks’
it is still in Portrait. Flip it back the event is fired again as portrait. If you start the
application in Landscape mode though everything works fine. Orientations are fired correctly.
I am currently partially circumventing the problem with checking the width of the window and
see what it shoul be and resize accordingly.. unfortunately that doesn’t help me when there
is no orientation event fired and just creating a check every second doesn’t really make
It looks like as if the webview thinks it is in Landscape during start and doesn’t fire
an orientation change event when the pad is actually in Portrait mode.
