Landscape vs. Portrait View

In Landscape View, the user interface should not get distorted when compared to Application in Portrait View.

Achieve a Uniform UI in both Orientations

Following are the guidelines to achieve a uniform UI in both orientations.

  • Create skins for both orientations for all the applicable widgets.
  • Use percentage based margins and paddings
  • Use form forking, if the requirement is to have different forms designs for respective platforms.
  • Define the “OnOrientationChange” event to dynamically change the form to be viewed / skins to be applied depending on the requirement.
