Description mike morrison (reporter) 2009-11-18 10:42:54 UTC
5.0 Final SDK

1. create a program that has the HILDON_PORTRAIT_MODE_REQUEST and
HILDON_PORTRAIT_MODE_SUPPORT set on the hildon window
2. in the program set up a HildonPickerButton as in Example 7. of the
HildonPickerButton documentation.
3. compile and run the program in scratchbox
4. click on the HildonPickerButton

HildonPickerDialog opens in portrait mode

HildonPickerDialog switches screen to landscape mode


This is just in scratchbox. I haven't tested this on the actual device. Maybe
there is a flag or setting somewhere that i'm missing? Other dialogs that I
create myself do stay in portrait mode.

URL highly welcome, also a small testcase.
For general information see
http://wiki.maemo.org/Using_Fremantle_Widgets#Portrait_Mode .

I can imagine that this is not a bug but an enhancement request in case this is
simply not supported.
Comment 2 mike morrison (reporter) 2009-11-19 10:42:08 UTC
i did a bit more testing and found that this behavior only happens when the
HildonPickerButton is added to a HildonAppMenu. if i just add the button to the
main app window, the HildonPickerDialog opens like it should in portrait mode.
unfortunately i don't want the button in my main window.

so add a step 2.5 to my "steps to reproduce":

2.5. add the HildonPickerButton to the HildonAppMenu

A future public update released with the year/week later than this internal

Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).
