How to set Landscape or Portrait Orientation Mode in Flutter

In this example, we are going to show you the best way to set Orientation mode in Flutter App. There are two orientations, i.e Landscape mode and Portrait mode. See the example below and learn how to set Orientation or switch Landscape mode to Portrait mode or vice versa. 

To set Landscape Orientation Mode:

import 'package:flutter/services.dart';
SystemChrome.setPreferredOrientations([
    DeviceOrientation.landscapeLeft,
    DeviceOrientation.landscapeRight,
]);

To Set Portrait Orientation Mode:

SystemChrome.setPreferredOrientations([
  DeviceOrientation.portraitDown,
  DeviceOrientation.portraitUp,
]);

Use these code inside Widget Build or initState() like below:

//in Statefull Screen
@override
void initState() {
  //set initial orentation to langscape
  SystemChrome.setPreferredOrientations([
    DeviceOrientation.landscapeLeft,
    DeviceOrientation.landscapeRight,
  ]);
  super.initState();
}
//----- OR --- in stateless screen
@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  //set initial orentation to langscape
  SystemChrome.setPreferredOrientations([
    DeviceOrientation.landscapeLeft,
    DeviceOrientation.landscapeRight,
  ]);

  return Scaffold();
}

To Change Orientation after Widget Build, use OrientationBuilder() widget like below:

OrientationBuilder(
 builder: (context, orientation) {
  return Container(
    child: Center(
      child: ElevatedButton( 
        child: Text("Switch Orentation"),
        onPressed: (){
          if(MediaQuery.of(context).orientation == Orientation.portrait){
            //if Orientation is portrait then set to landscape mode
              SystemChrome.setPreferredOrientations([
                  DeviceOrientation.landscapeLeft,
                  DeviceOrientation.landscapeRight,
                ]);
          }else{
              //if Orientation is landscape then set to portrait
              SystemChrome.setPreferredOrientations([
                DeviceOrientation.portraitDown,
                DeviceOrientation.portraitUp,
              ]);
          }
        },
      )
    ),
)

Full Dart Code:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:flutter/services.dart';
void main() {
  runApp(MyApp());
}

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget{
  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();
}

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
  @override
  void initState() {
    //set initial Orientation to landscape
    SystemChrome.setPreferredOrientations([
      DeviceOrientation.landscapeLeft,
      DeviceOrientation.landscapeRight,
    ]);
    super.initState();
  }
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
        title: "Test App",
        home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(title:Text("Switch Orientation Mode")),
        body: OrientationBuilder(
              builder: (context, orientation) {
                  return Container(
                    child: Center(
                      child: ElevatedButton( 
                        child: Text("Switch Orientation"),
                        onPressed: (){
                          if(MediaQuery.of(context).orientation == Orientation.portrait){
                            //if Orientation is portrait then set to landscape mode
                              SystemChrome.setPreferredOrientations([
                                  DeviceOrientation.landscapeLeft,
                                  DeviceOrientation.landscapeRight,
                                ]);
                          }else{
                              //if Orientation is landscape then set to portrait
                              SystemChrome.setPreferredOrientations([
                                DeviceOrientation.portraitDown,
                                DeviceOrientation.portraitUp,
                              ]);
                          }
                        },
                      )
                    ),
                  );
        }),
      )
    );
  }
}

In this way, you can set Landscape or Portrait Orientation mode in Flutter App.
