    I am trying make a GUI which looks nice on both orientations.

    I created a layout "welcome_v" for vertical orientation and a layout "welcome_h" for horizontal.

    I am switching between the two when I detect an orientation change, such as in Resume and Create methods, as following :

    If Activity.Width > Activity.Height Then
    End If

    It works fine so far.

    I this a good practice ? Can you please recommend a better one ?
    Thank you.

    No. You should instead use a single layout file with two variants. This way you will only need to modify the views position and size.

    With that said, in many cases you can use a single variant and change the layout with anchors and designer script.
