Description Dave Wright 2013-04-18 07:44:22 UTC
In the Android documentation:


there are interface constants for orientation values, e.g.:

Typing "ExifInterface." in Xamarin Studio brings up a list of all the tag options (e.g. TagFlash, TagIso) but not the constants, so in my code I'm currently forced to write "case 6:" instead of a much nicer "case ExifInterface.OrientationRotate90" or equivalent.

The constant is Android.Media.Orientation.Rotate90. It took me a bit to find the constants as well, the Assembly Browser got me my answer.
