A Self-Rotating View Controller
If you have a need to place a view controller directly into a window, without it being a child of that window’s root view controller, then you’ll likely have found that rotation doesn’t happen automatically for you. Which is a serious pain. This class has the answer.
Make your controller class a subclass of
AQSelfRotatingViewController. Before adding its
-view to your
UIWindow, be sure to call
-viewWillAppear:, and also call
-viewDidAppear: after adding it. Likewise call
-viewDidDisappear: when removing the view from the window.
That’s it. No, really— that’s it.
