 Hi - After some help with this.

I am making an Android app which is currently coming along nicely -
I've hit upon a couple of stumbling blocks.


1) How do I stop the screen from going dim/off and the phone locking
while the application is running?

2) Can I force the phone to enter landscape mode on running my
application?

Thanks,
Andrew :)

Keep Screen On & Change Orientation

 There is a flag in WindowManager.LayoutParams you can set to keep the screen
on.  (Please do NOT use the lower-level PowerManager class for this.)

Use android:screenOrientation on the activity in your manifest to force a
particular orientation mode.
