Description Bryan Moulton 2013-06-25 14:11:09 UTC
In reference to case #38911

1. Create a new Android Ice Cream Sandwich application.

2. The project structure contains a “Layout” folder under “Resources” folder and the Layout folder has a file called “Main.axml”. When you double click this file, the file will show “Portrait” mode in one of the tabs at the top.

3. Now close the Main.axml file.

4. Create another folder under “Resources” with the name “Layout-land”(as per your wiki), this folder should contain files that will render in Landscape mode. Add a new layout file to this folder and give it any name.

5. Now open up the Main.axml file under “Resources->Layout” folder and you will see that it shows “Landscape” mode at the top.
