ScreenOrientation Enumeration

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Specifies the angle of the orientation of the device screen that can be accessed by the ScreenOrientation property.

Namespace:  Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms
Assembly:  Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms (in Microsoft.WindowsCE.Forms.dll)

public enum ScreenOrientation

Member nameDescription
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkAngle0Specifies a portrait orientation at 0 degrees.
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkAngle90Specifies an orientation at 90 degrees.
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkAngle180Specifies a landscape orientation at 180 degrees.
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkAngle270Specifies an orientation at 270 degrees.

The default portrait orientation is at angle 0. Requires Pocket PC 2003 update.

The following code example shows how button clicks rotate the screen orientation through the ScreenOrientation enumeration. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SystemSettings class.



 // Each click event changes the screen orientation, as determined
 // by the variable x, which increments from 0 to 3 and then back
 // to 0. Four clicks cycle through the ScreenOrientation enumeration.

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

 switch(x)
 {
  case 0:

   // Pass a value for the ScreenOrientation enumeration
   // to the SetOrientation method, defined below,
   // and increment x so that the next button
   // click rotates the screen orientation.
   SetOrientation(ScreenOrientation.Angle90);
   x++;
   break;
  case 1:
   SetOrientation(ScreenOrientation.Angle180);
   x++;
   break;
  case 2:
   SetOrientation(ScreenOrientation.Angle270);
   x++;
   break;
  case 3:
   SetOrientation(ScreenOrientation.Angle0);
   x = 0;
   break;
  default:
   SetOrientation(ScreenOrientation.Angle0);
   x = 0;
   break;
 }
}

 // Set the orientation to a value of the
 // ScreenOrienation enumeration and update the
 // status bar with the current angle.
private void SetOrientation(ScreenOrientation so)
{
 // Set the requested orientation.

 SystemSettings.ScreenOrientation = so;

 this.statusBar1.Text = SystemSettings.ScreenOrientation.ToString();
}
