Titanium SDK version: 1.5.0 (11/29/10 08:10 faa27c7). G2 (2.2) some G1 (1.6) some droid 1 (2.2) and a bit of sim (2.1)

behavior change since last weeks pull (

1.Phone > orientation
2.hold it in portrait
3.Tap set landscape

results: app goes to landscape, on screen values report "landscape left", while the device is being held in portrait

expected: report back device orientation

    Not sure this is a regression per se we've always reported the activities orientation not device orientation. If they wanted device orientation they would set a listener for it.

    should have added : in 1.4.2 we seem to be reporting app and not device orientation.

    AAAAAARGH I mean device - we used to report device orientation in 1.4.2

    Orientation changes are reported per-Activity in Android, so the old app-wide behavior was probably just attached to the root activity, which would've been problematic as well. I don't know that this is necessarily a regression -- just a truer following of how Android deals with orientation change. Can we mark as invalid?

    Closed as invalid.
