Android - Screen Rotation


When the screen orientation changes, the system destroys and recreates the activity in order to apply alternative resources that might be available for the new screen configuration.

The following lifecycle callback function sequence is then called

  1. onPause
  2. onStop
  3. onCreate
  4. onResume
  5. onStart
  6. onDestroy


To rotate an emulator, use:

  • Linux: CTRL + F12
  • Mac: Fn + Left CTRL + F12
  • Windows: Left CTRL + F11 or Left CTRL + F12
