RE:Orientation not supported for API13 and above

Dear All,

We have facing the below problems for orientation

For Handling Rotation ConfigurationChanges=Android.Content.PM.ConfigChanges.Orientation is supported only below API level 13

For API level 13 and above, the available ConfigurationChanges=Android.Content.PM.ConfigChanges.Screensize property is not available in Xamarin ? kindly let us know on how to define the property or suggest any alternative to avoid reloading of activity on orientation change?

    Should work since API level 1. What makes you think it doesn't work above Level 13?

    I have implemented the below code in main activity for orientation change when rotating the device for API Level 15.

    [Activity (Label = "MainActivity", ConfigurationChanges=Android.Content.PM.ConfigChanges.Orientation)]
        public class MainActivity: Activity

    When rotating the device ,the activity is restarted .Kindly give some suggestions on this.
