ScreenOrientationHelper

Screen orientation event listener helper for activity

Use onCofigurationChanged() doesn't works for detected screen orientation. That made configuration change doesn't works when user rotate the screen. So I build this library to solved the problem with better solution.

Download

Maven

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.akexorcist</groupId>
  <artifactId>screenorientationhelper</artifactId>
  <version>1.0.0</version>
</dependency>

Gradle

compile 'com.akexorcist:screenorientationhelper:1.0.0'

Usage

This library should be implemented on base activity class that you want to detect the screen orientation

public class BaseActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements ScreenOrientationHelper.ScreenOrientationChangeListener {
    private ScreenOrientationHelper helper = new ScreenOrientationHelper(this);

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(@Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        helper.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        helper.setScreenOrientationChangeListener(this);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onStart() {
        super.onStart();
        helper.onStart();
    }

    @Override
    protected void onSaveInstanceState(Bundle outState) {
        super.onSaveInstanceState(outState);
        helper.onSaveInstanceState(outState);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onRestoreInstanceState(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onRestoreInstanceState(savedInstanceState);
        helper.onRestoreInstanceState(savedInstanceState);
    }

    @Override
    public void onScreenOrientationChanged(int orientation) {

    }

    ...
}

Then extends your activity from this base class and override the onScreenOrientationChanged method

public class MainActivity extends BaseActivity {

    ...

    @Override
    public void onScreenOrientationChanged(int orientation) {
        // Do something when screen orientation changed
    }
}

Done! So easy, right?
