Description Dave Wright 2013-06-28 04:30:14 UTC
In the Activity options, I'm setting ScreenOrientation = ScreenOrientation.SensorPortrait.  However, Google have made a typo (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13017922/androidscreenorientation-sensorportrait-not-valid) and it should equate to sensorPortait and not sensorPortrait.

Not sure if this is related to bug 8328 (https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=8328) but thought it was dissimilar enough to log a new bug.

Wow. OK, I *fixed* it to generate sensorPortait so that apps will build. Thanks for the report.

Hi there, looks like Google have fixed the problem from API 16.


Sorry for the bother.
Comment 3 John Miller [MSFT] 2014-08-27 17:17:17 UTC
Hitting this with XA 4.16

Targeting API 19. Just add "ScreenOrientation = ScreenOrientation.SensorPortrait" to your activity attributes and build.
Comment 4 John Miller [MSFT] 2014-08-27 17:27:56 UTC
Only compiling against <= API 15 works. Seems there is a typo in this, and depending on the API the attribute is not matching what is expected.
Comment 5 Jonathan Pryor 2014-08-27 17:31:24 UTC
Looks like AndroidManifest.xml generation needs a targetSdkVersion check...

The issue now Xamairn build tools create android:portait in the manifest file, even if API level >= 16 which shouldn't be the case
Android has 'portait' only for API level < 15

As a workaround you can set it by code in Activity::OnCreate()

Fixed in monodroid/master/ac63f45a
Comment 12 Andrei.N 2015-04-27 03:26:15 UTC
For which version of Xamarin Android was this marked as fixed?

I have 
Xamarin.Android Version: 4.20.2 and this is not fixed

It should be in the Beta channel at the moment.
