Screen orientation changes automatically?

I see reference to screen orientation support in the "What's New" doc, however I cannot find any way to detect a screen orientation event has occurred. Am I to assume we must query the height/width ourselves?

You need to use the FormLib library.

Thanks Erel.

I thought I had seen that somewhere when I was reading the docs, but when I went looking for it again I couldn't find it in the list of methods that Formlib supports, and search "resize" yields nothing. I see it now in the Overview paragraph. By chance is there a complete list of supported events/methods for the librarys that one can use as a reference? I hate to miss something. Now I can go remove my timer event that was looking for screen orientation changed ;)

It is missing from the FormLib help by mistake.
It will be fixed. :signOops:
