Dear All

I have created login screen using IB. And in add-info.plist , in type: "main nib base file name", I have written name of the xib which I created using IB.

Now in application delegate's didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method, I am simply writing
[window makeKeyAndVisible];
return YES

This way, the login view (login xib)is loaded as soon as I start the application.But my problem is that this is always launched in portrait mode and there is no rotation when simulator/iPad is rotated.

My query is that If I make two xib: one for portrait mode and other for landscape mode, how is it possible to load the one depending on the device orientation.

Also, when I open the xib in IB, in attribute inspector, orientation of xib is always seen in default portrait (in orientation field) and I am unable to change it as it is disabled.

Any idea is appreciated.

I think you would be better off creating a UIViewController class, then loading the xib file from that controller class's initWithNibName:bundle: method.

That way you can use the UIViewController class's shouldAutorotateToInterfaceOrientation: method, like this.

- (BOOL)shouldAutorotateToInterfaceOrientation:(UIInterfaceOrientation)io
    return (io == UIInterfaceOrientationPortrait || UIInterfaceOrientationIsLandscape(io);
The above implementation of the UIViewController method, will turn all views automatically
to the correct orientation.

Hope this helps.

Regards Mark
