Subject [jira] [Updated] (CB-13933) Add an extra orientation event for the real orientation even when locked
Date Thu, 01 Mar 2018 16:08:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-13933?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Mark Veenstra updated CB-13933:
-------------------------------
    Description: 
On Android when you open the camera app for example and you turn it from portrait to landscape
you can see the layout is locked to portrait, but the icons will turn.

We would like to do the same in Cordova. But the current plugin does not fire the real orientation
of the device once it is locked. Also the plugin fires the orientation from JS point of view
instead of native point of view.

For Android it should be possible to fire the "real" orientation even when locked to an orientation.
See: [https://stackoverflow.com/a/45437200/1800695]

Would it be a good idea to add / trigger a JS event from the native indicating the real orientation
of the device so you can turn buttons in the HTML based on that event, but stick to the portrait
layout?
