Rotating the screen display

Any feature you'd like to see in Ultr@VNC? Just propose it here.

Rotating the screen display

Postby timhortons000 » 2010-11-16 01:24

Hi,

Does the UltraVNC viewer support rotating the screen?

I'd like to rotate the remote screen I'm viewing either clockwise or counterclockwise - I'm looking at a mobile screen.

I've seen at least one utility written in C# that allowed you to do this (was called ORIENTATION property). But I don't see it in the viewer anywhere. It's akin to looking at PORTRAIT or LANDSCAPE mode

Would really like to be able to pass it in as a command-line parameter when I run it if it's possible

Thanks for any assistance!

Tim

Not possible...

I just wonder what the usage.
If you rotate a screen, you also rotate the content. Content viewer and real screen use a different angle.

imagine remote is a tablet with uvnc server full and turned 90° right clock (portrait mode)

then at your local vncviewer is 0° clock (landscape mode default )
viewer need to adapt remote screen to local screen ?
or
is automatic from OS and vnc server sent to viewer ?

remote portait
send 90° rotated to portable (landscape)

Physical rotate portable 90°
For viewing this is ok, but having a vertical keyboard isn't easy to work on.

Sending a 90° rotated screen makes the PC OS and viewer 90°
vert mouse move on OS = horizontal remote..
