LCD-Display with pivot that will trigger windows to turn the screen - do you know one?

Hi there,
I know a lot of LCDs that you can rotate upright but none of them is able to trigger windows to turn the picture, too. It has to be done manually with a few mouseclicks. I heard rumors, that some models exist that can do without, do you know one?

I haven't heard of them, but usually you can usa a key combination to spin the display.

Any monitor that supports DDC CI with a rotation sensor will work with software such as Pivot Pro to automatically rotate the picture.   I've used a Viewsonic in the past with Pivot Pro that I had set up to automatically adjust the display and it worked beautifully.   I do not currently have any monitors that I rotate (I now use a 3-monitor desktop), so I don't know if the current Viewsonic "Pro" monitors that support pivoting displays include rotation sensors or not (I suspect they do -- but it's not clear on their web site).

... I'd suggest you ask before buying any pivoting monitor if it includes a rotation sensor (or at least be sure it's returnable if it doesn't).

Hi Mike, thanks for the comment. I am to order some hardware for some strange fellow at work.
If I told him, he would only have to press a comb. of keys, he would not accept that as a bearable solution, I know that for sure, because I did...  ;)

I just asked one of my coworkers. He said Samsung makes LCD displays with a technology they call MagicRotation. This osunds like what you are looking for

I already looked at MR, it uses hotkeys to do the trick.

"MagicRotation, an automatic pivot feature, allows users to change the orientation of the display and the video will automatically track the display's new orientation"

That is what this website says

The current Viewsonic "Pro" series LCDs do have a rotation sensor -- and include a "PerfectSuite" control package that will implement auto-rotation.

... as I noted before, I've used the Viewsonics in this mode (with Pivot Pro) and they worked perfectly -- reach up, rotate the display, and it instantly adjusts.   I suspect their current lineup works just as well -- and I'd expect the SamSung's Mike linked to will do the same.

As I noted in my first post:  "... Any monitor that supports DDC CI with a rotation sensor will work ..."

Hmm, Mike, I read http://www.samsung.com/Products/Monitors/magictune/magicrotation_02s.htm before and it sayd nothing about that. At work, we have several Samsung 204 TS with that software installed (with compatible video adapters) and it does not do the trick on its own.
But it has to, like you quote "MagicRotation, an automatic pivot feature, allows users to change the orientation of the display and the video will automatically track the display's new orientation".
I  will be back tomorrow after checking it again.

Thanks so far to you and Gary.
