OrientationSensor.GetDefault | getDefault method

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Gets the default orientation sensor.

Syntax


var orientationSensor = Windows.Devices.Sensors.OrientationSensor.getDefault();

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: OrientationSensor

The default orientation sensor or null if no orientation sensors are found.

Remarks

This method only returns values for hardware that has been integrated into the computer by the manufacturer. (The orientation-sensor readings are derived from multiple sensors.) A null value will be returned if the specified sensor is not available in the system.

When a system is in Connected Standby, a call to the GetDefault method will return immediately with a null result.

The following example demonstrates how a Windows Store app built with XAML and C# used this method to establish a connection to the orientation sensor.


_sensor = OrientationSensor.GetDefault();
