Describe HowToRotateADisplay here.

Hey guys,

I am currently working on a small app that will live in the tool bar and provide quick easy access to rotating the screen from landscape mode to portrait mode. Right now i can accomplish this by using some pretty sloppy AppleScripting but know there must be a better way to do it.

I’ve researched a lot of sites but no one seems to have hit on this one yet. The only functions I can find on the Apple Developer site relate to Quartz Display Services but I’m not really sure if this is what I’m looking for.

Does anyone out there have any ideas on any functions or frameworks I should be using to accomplish this?

thanks! jarod

The only place I could find any reference to screen rotation is in IOKit/IOGraphicsTypes.h. There appear to be structures for getting and setting screen rotations, though I have no idea how or where they are used. But it might put you on the right track…. –GrahamCox
