Orientation

Locking orientation#

Orientation can be locked either in the layout level, or across the app via default options. You can declare orientations you'd like your app to support in default options.

Setting orientation in default options will affect all screens in all hierarchy levels. It's still possible to override orientation for specific screens.

Navigation.setDefaultOptions({
layout: {
orientation: ['portrait']
}
});

Changing orientation dynamically#

Changing orientation dynamically through Navigation.mergeOption() is supported only on Android.

Navigation.mergeOptions(this.props.componentId, {
layout: {
orientation: ['landscape']
}
});
