There doesn’t seem to be a way anywhere within the sdk to rotate a UINavigationController and it’s children to a new orientation when the view is displayed. There are a ton of people asking about this all over the web and everyone gives them the same useless answer that doesn’t solve the problem. This creates a ton of posts I have to sort through and no results.
Yes, I know how to tell it to rotate or not rotate a certain view, no this isn’t the functionality I’m looking for.
I have multiple pages of data. Some I require must remain in portrait mode while others are able to be rotated. Going to one of these rotatable views and then returning to a portrait view will cause the portrait view to be in landscape mode. Rotating the device to fix this view doesn’t work as this one doesn’t allow rotating. *sigh*
I’ve been spending a few hours messing around with the MapKit part of the iPhone 3.0 SDK. I was able to easily get a scrollable google map up and running pretty quickly and then mess with rendering my own content on top of it. I need to be able to place multiple markers around the map, but I don’t want to use map annotations for all of them because the pins just look horrible. They’re fine for user locations, but pins everywhere just looks bad, plus they’re only available in red, green, and purple. So, I’m drawing my own markers on top of the map and that seems to be working well for the most part.
Going to keep messing with it for a bit and see if it’s definitely a piece of the sdk I want to continue to use.
