rotate screen with command?

Postby rtarver » Thu Jan 15, 2009 10:56 pm

I have a viewpad 1000 I've been setting up for multi-use. In normal use it'll sit in it's cradle and serve duty as an info-center. Weather, RSS feeds, calendar, menus etc. Second duty will be when I need to pull it off and browse the movie collection. Does anybody know how to rotate the screen display through ML? It would be nice if I could tie that command to a button that rotated the screen display and launched the landscape mode scenes.

Thanks,

Russ

What graphics driver does it use? Most of the Intel graphics drivers have a hotkey function you can enable that does screen rotation.

Found the hot key setup Ctrl+shift+[R 0 9 8 7] will shift to the specified orientation. Now, how do I go about passing a command to press a hot key combination?

Thanks,

The SendKeys function of MLWindowFunctions should allow you to send the appropriate keys. The trick may be to find the appropriate window that needs to be active, if any.
