Thank you for the reply, now it is clear that implementing landscape in
portrait via rotation is the only way. Initial experiments showed that its
possible to do so, although a lot of places needs to be updated (at least
using approach from here
), like Calendar, dialogs, dropdown lists of comboboxes etc. Probably I'm
missing something, but is there way to implement this rotation logic in a
single place?
