Device orientation event

For my first ever Gideros game, which is yet unreleased, I wanted to allow both portrait and landscape orientation on iOS and Android. I never got it to work. Now, five years later is there a way to do this?

    You can listen for APPLICATION_RESIZE event
  • I tried it, but got no event fired:
    stage:addEventListener( Event.APPLICATION_RESIZE, self.onApplicationResize, self )
    It's on the Gideros player on Android. I have set the auto rotation flag to true in properties. Is there something else I need to do?

    Looking at the code it looks like the event is fired for all platforms but android! I am fixing that.

  • Will this event also work in HTML5 when the window is resized?

  • Don't forget to set the switch in the requires plugin for Android landscape and portrait.
