How do I specify different layouts for portrait and landscape orientations?


Question

I've seen references to being able to specify two separate layout xml files for an activity, one for Portrait and one for Landscape. I've not been to find any information on how to do that though. How do I specify for each activity which xml file is it's portrait layout and which is the Landscape layout?

Is it also possible to specify different layouts for different screen sizes? If so, how is this done?

Accepted Answer

Create a layout-land directory and put the landscape version of your layout XML file in that directory.

You just have to put it under separate folders with different names depending on orientation and resolution, the device will automatically select the right one for its screen settings
