Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

The orientation sensor reports the orientation of the device. As it operates below the UI level it does not report on or even know how the UI is rotated. Most importantly this means that this sensor cannot be used to detect if a device is in portrait or landscape mode.

This sensor is useful to detect that a particular side of the device is pointing up.

QOrientationReading Units

The orientation sensor returns the orientation of the device using the pre-defined values found in the Orientation enum.

class PySide2.QtSensors.QOrientationReading(parent)
Parameters

PySide2.QtSensors.QOrientationReading.Orientation

To explain the meaning of each value it is helpful to refer to the following diagram.

QOrientationReading.TopUp

The Top edge of the device is pointing up.

QOrientationReading.TopDown

QOrientationReading.RightUp

The Right edge of the device is pointing up.

QOrientationReading.FaceUp

It should be noted that the orientation sensor reports the orientation of the device and not the UI. The orientation of the device will not change just because the UI is rotated. This means this sensor cannot be used to detect if a device is in portrait or landscape mode.
