SimpleOrientationSensor.GetDefault SimpleOrientationSensor.GetDefault SimpleOrientationSensor.GetDefault SimpleOrientationSensor.GetDefault SimpleOrientationSensor.GetDefault Method

Definition

Gets the default simple orientation sensor.

public : static SimpleOrientationSensor GetDefault()
static SimpleOrientationSensor GetDefault() const;
public static SimpleOrientationSensor GetDefault()
Public Shared Function GetDefault() As SimpleOrientationSensor
var simpleOrientationSensor = Windows.Devices.Sensors.SimpleOrientationSensor.getDefault();

Returns

The default simple orientation sensor or null if no simple orientation sensors are found.

Remarks

This method only returns values for hardware that has been integrated into the computer by the manufacturer. (The simple orientation-sensor readings are derived from an accelerometer.) A null value will be returned if the specified sensor is not available in the system.

When a system is in Connected Standby, a call to the GetDefault method will return immediately with a null result.

The following example demonstrates how a UWP app built with XAML and C# used this method to establish a connection to the simple orientation sensor.

_sensor = SimpleOrientationSensor.GetDefault();

The following example demonstrates how a UWP app built for Windows using JavaScript used this method to establish a connection to the simple orientation sensor.

sensor = Windows.Devices.Sensors.SimpleOrientationSensor.getDefault();
