Change Device Orientation

You can change the device orientation by using the deviceOrientation capability.

Capability Description Expected values
deviceOrientation Set the screen orientation of the mobile device A string. Default is portrait.

portrait if you want the device to be in portrait mode, landscape otherwise.

For example, refer to the sample of setting device orientation to landscape:

// Change device orientation to landscape

DesiredCapabilities caps = new DesiredCapabilities();
caps.setCapability("deviceOrientation", "landscape");
// Change device orientation to landscape

var capabilities = {
 "deviceOrientation" : "landscape"
}
// To get landscape orientation on android device
ChromeOptions capability = new ChromeOptions();
capability.AddAdditionalCapability("deviceOrientation", "landscape", true);

// To get landscape orientation on iOS devices
SafariOptions capability = new SafariOptions();
capability.AddAdditionalCapability("deviceOrientation", "landscape");
# Change device orientation to landscape

$caps = array(
 "deviceOrientation" => "landscape"
);
# Change device orientation to landscape

capabilities = {
 "deviceOrientation" : "landscape"
}
# Change device orientation to landscape

caps = Selenium::WebDriver::Remote::Capabilities.new
caps["deviceOrientation"] = "landscape"
# Change device orientation to landscape

my $capabilities = {
 "deviceOrientation" => "landscape"
}
Note: Changing the orientation of your mobile device can be done only before test execution starts, using a capability. The orientation cannot be changed in the middle of the test script.

Following is the example of the device orientation in landscape mode: Change device orientation in landscape mode

If deviceOrientation capability is not set, the test will run in portrait mode as shown in the following figure:
