Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9240) Cordova splash screen plugin iPad landscape mode issue
Date Thu, 12 Nov 2015 19:38:11 GMT


Jacob Weber commented on CB-9240:

Played around with this a little, launching an app in landscape on an iPhone 6 simulator.

Without the patch, on iOS 8.1 and iOS 8.4, the app launches in portrait mode, even though
the device is in landscape. It's as if you had locked the orientation while the device was
in portrait, then rotated the device to landscape.

With the patch (i.e. after commenting out the "load" method), the same behavior happens on
iOS 8.1. But on iOS 8.4, the app rotates to landscape after the splash screen is hidden.

I'm not sure which one is the desired behavior.

> I am using the Cordova splash screen plugin (
in my hybrid mobile app targeted for iOS. I have all the splash screen images added to my
project. The reason for using this plugin is to elongate the time for which the splash screen
is shown and I manually hide it later in the app. So my config.xml has the following declarations:
> <preference name="AutoHideSplashScreen" value="false" />
> <preference name="ShowSplashScreenSpinner" value="false"/>
> This plugin works fine in the portrait mode on iPhone and iPad. But on the iPad in landscape
mode, the plugin shows the splash image in portrait mode and consequently my first app view
also shows in the portrait mode even though the device is in landscape mode.
