Hi All,
Second attempt. Please excuse the messy layout something went wrong.

I am displaying a help file {HTML] in a WebView which is on a panel. To make reading easier I am trying to show the Webview in Landscape, the App is Portrait.
The Help file is displayed OK until the orientation changes, then the main GUI is shown lanscape for a moment then goes back to portrait. Helpfile lost.

There is nothing shown in the error log.

Any ideas welcome as usual.

Regards Roger
