Hello Experts,

I am doing a simple mobile web application using jquery mobile.
I wounder if its possible to to prevent landscape view only on one of the pages (e.g. the start page)?

I am trying to use "orientationchange=flase". Not sure if i am doing the right thing though.

Can someone guide me?

Hi,

Whell, the orientation is fired by the mobile browser itself, so as far as I know there is no way to deactivate this. But there are some jquery/css hacks for a workaround.

Hope some of these solutions work for you.
