    Unhappy After locking app orientation virtual keyboard's one is locked also. How avoid that?

    Hello.
    For simplicity let us asume that i have app with main window and line edit.
    I want main window orinetation be locked, but when virtual keyboard is opened it should respond to orientation changes. On touch devices vk landscape mode is more usable.
    The solution must work on __s60__ and s^3.
    Is there any way to prevent rotation change for a qwidget ? If so, i can do this for every qwidget (or maybe for top level qwidget) in my app and remove global orientation lock.

    This is pretty natural question, please help.

    Unlock the rotation when you display the associated screen. The entire screen is rotated or not, not individual widgets.

    You could of course present all your widgets rotated, but you'd have to do it yourself somehow, widget by widget, line of text by line of text.

    On n8 it works pretty reasonable, but on s60 it causes infinite loop with switch to handwriting mode and then it breaks keyboard for all aplications - it appears to be handwriting at all apps and with no ui at all. I have to reboot my phone after this.

    Looks like stupid bug in s60.
    So, can you tell me how to avoid change of rotation for a qwidget.

    E.g. I have one qwidget and I i want to lock the rotation of a particular widget.
    ?

    Or maybe there is a way remove handwriting from vk ???

    You can't lock rotation (or rotate) on a per-widget basis -- it's the whole screen or nothing.
