The orientation of the device.


This allows you to determine the orientation of the device relative to the Earth. See Orientations for all possible orientations. MobileScreen.OrientationChanged event will be called anytime the orientation changes which is a likely place to access the Orientation property. However, you can access it at any other time.

Sample Code

This example displays a message box if the device is face down:

If System.Device.Orientation = System.DeviceData.Orientations.FaceDown Then
MessageBox("Why are you ignoring me?")
End If
