Instance Method

shouldAutorotateToInterfaceOrientation:

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether the view controller supports the specified orientation.

Declaration

- (BOOL)shouldAutorotateToInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)toInterfaceOrientation;

Parameters

interfaceOrientation

The orientation of the app'€™s user interface after the rotation. The possible values are described in UIInterfaceOrientation.

Return Value

YES if the view controller auto-rotates its view to the specified orientation; otherwise, NO.

Discussion

By default, this method returns YES for the UIInterfaceOrientationPortrait orientation only. If your view controller supports additional orientations, override this method and return YES for all orientations it supports.

Your implementation of this method should simply return YES or NO based on the value in the interfaceOrientation parameter. Do not attempt to get the value of the interfaceOrientation property or check the orientation value reported by the UIDevice class. Your view controller is either capable of supporting a given orientation or it is not.
