How to Configure Display Orientation for Motorola WT41N0 devices

    Verified Product Versions

    Wavelink Terminal Emulation 7.0

    This only applies to Motorola WT41N0 devices

     

    Motorola has incorporated a new zero degree location that produces rotations differently than what is historically expected.

     

    Display Orientation changes the orientation of the display within the device's view frame.  The display orientation is changed using 90 degree rotations.Without any change, the emulation client renders the display in alignment with the device view frame.  This means that the bottom of the display is associated with the bottom of the view frame (see below).

    When the Display Orientation setting is used, the emulation client makes rotations based on a zero degree starting point set by the manufacturer.

    Historically the manufacturer has associated the zero degree starting point with the bottom of the view frame.  However, the WT41N0 device associates the zero degree starting point with the vertical left side of the view frame.  This remains unseen until the Display Orientation setting is changed within the Wavelink TE Client (beginning with version 7.3.186) from the default setting of Keep Current Configuration.


    The Display Orientation options are as follows:

    Keep Current Orientation

    The screen is not rotated from the orientation that TE starts with (even if the orientation is changed beforehand by another app)

    Use Standard Orientation

    The screen is rotated with the bottom of the screen being associated with the Manufacturers' zero degree starting point on the left hand side of the view frame.

    Rotate Counterclockwise

    The screen is rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise (from the zero degree starting point) with the bottom of the screen being on bottom of the view frame.

    Rotate Clockwise

    The screen is rotated 90 degrees clockwise (from the zero degree starting point) with the bottom of the screen being along the top of the view frame.

    Turn Upside Down

    The screen is rotated 180 degrees (from the zero degree starting point) with the bottom of the screen being along the right hand side of the view frame.

     

     

     

    Keep Current Orientation is the default value. 

    This keeps the display in what we would consider the “Normal View”

    If "Use Standard Orientation" is selected, the display appears as:

    If Rotate Counterclockwise is selected, the display appears as:

    The new zero degree location produces rotations differently than what is historically expected.
