Show Portrait Mode in BlackBerry PlayBook Simulator

PlayBook Simulator

Dennis pointed out to me that there is a quick way to switch to portrait orientation in the BlackBerry Simulator. According to him this little gesture also works in the older simulator but its the first I have heard of it. To switch to portrait mode you simply need to swipe from the bottom right corner of the bezel towards the center of the device. To swipe just click down on the mouse button and hold it down as you drag.

My simulator is acting up on my laptop so I have not had a chance to try it myself but I had two other devs try it out and it worked. Let me know if it works for you too.

  1. Great news to see the adaption.
    so many people gawking over no portrait views for so long….

  2. Very interesting

  3. I can’t wait to see what people come up with. The more time people have with it, the better it will be.

  4. Intriguing, its like it was there all along and unknown until they saw it in a video and went to experiment.
