#16490 closed defect (fixed)

dojox/mobile: on iOS6, some apps sometimes don't resize as expected when changing the device orientation

Reported by: Adrian Vasiliu Owned by: Eric Durocher
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.8.4
Component: DojoX Mobile Version: 1.8.2

Blocked By: Blocking:


At least with an app using dojox/mobile/ScreenSizeAware and dojox/mobile/FixedSplitter, when running on iOS 6 devices (iPad and iPhone), the app sometimes doesn't resize itself as expected after changing the device orientation.

How to reproduce:

  1. Load on an iOS 6 device (reproduced on iPad 4 iOS 6.0.1 and iPhone 4S iOS 6.0.1).

  1. Change the orientation of the device a number of times

=> After some number of orientation changes (sometimes after 15-20 turns, sometimes earlier), the app doesn't resize itself to adjust to the device orientation.

Workaround: Turn the device again (back and forth).


  • Also holds for Dojo 1.8.1, but not for 1.8.0.
  • Apparently it is a side-effect with the iOS6-specific changes in dojox/mobile/common (disabling these fixes the issue).
  • It doesn't seem related with how fast you turn the device (I also reproduced while turning slowly).
  • Did not reproduce on iPad 2 iOS 5.1.
  • Unclear whether it specific to the ScreenSizeAware / FixedSplitter used in this test. With a few other samples I did not reproduce (yet?) a similar issue.

After further tests, it seems the issue is specific to dojox/mobile/ScreenSizeAware. The iOS6-specific changes in dojox/mobile/common (full-screen support) apparently make it hurt more often, but I also reproduced on iPhone 4S iOS 6.0.1 with the same test in Dojo 1.8.0 ( ), that is before the changes for full-screen support.

On the other side, I did NOT reproduce (after many attempts) with a test using FixedSplitter but NOT using ScreenSizeAware: .

ScreenSizeAware being marked experimental, and unless the issue will be reproduced without ScreenSizeAware, I would think the severity of this issue is low. Of course, this doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to be fixed, it is just an estimate of the impact.

This issue appears to go away thanks to the new ios6 full-screen support introduced in #16658. So this ticket can be closed when #16658 will be closed.
