iOS Question

Different layouts in portrait and landscape mode

Let's assume I have this layout design on an iPad Portrait.

Screen1

But I would like to have it this way when the iPad is in landscape:
screen2

Is it possible to do that with auto layout?
Or with a small amount of code?

Answer

You can achieve this through code First of all you have to make IBoutlet of your dynamic constraints

Constant Constraint: // these constraint will remain same in both orientations

1- RedView top Space to Superview

2- RedView Trailing Space to Superview

3- BlueView Leading Space to Superview

4- BlueView bottom Space to SuperView

Dynamic Constraint

Portrait Constraint:

1- RedView height

2- RedView Vertical Space to BlueView

3- RedView Leading Space to Superview

4- BlueView Trailing Space to Superview

LandScape Constraint:

1- RedView Width

2- RedView Horizontal Space to BlueView

3- RedView bottom Space to Superview

4- BlueView Top Space to Superview

Now You have to override method which is called on Orientation change

override func viewWillTransitionToSize(size: CGSize,   withTransitionCoordinator coordinator:    UIViewControllerTransitionCoordinator) {

    coordinator.animateAlongsideTransition({ (UIViewControllerTransitionCoordinatorContext) -> Void in

        let orient = UIApplication.sharedApplication().statusBarOrientation

        switch orient {
        case .Portrait:
            print("Portrait")
            self.ApplyportraitConstraint()
            break
            // Do something
        default:
            print("LandScape")
            // Do something else
            self.applyLandScapeConstraint()
            break
        }
        }, completion: { (UIViewControllerTransitionCoordinatorContext) -> Void in
            print("rotation completed")
    })
    super.viewWillTransitionToSize(size, withTransitionCoordinator: coordinator)
}

And call these 2 functions

Portrait Orientation Function

func ApplyportraitConstraint(){

 self.view.addConstraint(self.RedViewHeight)
 self.view.addConstraint(self.RedView_VerticalSpace_To_BlueView)
 self.view.addConstraint(self.RedView_LeadingSpace_To_SuperView)
 self.view.addConstraint(self.BlueView_TrailingSpace_To_SuperView)

 self.view.removeConstraint(self.RedViewWidth)
 self.view.removeConstraint(self.RedView_HorizontalSpace_To_BlueView)
 self.view.removeConstraint(self.RedView_BottomSpace_To_SuperView)          
 self.view.removeConstraint(self.BlueView_TopSpace_To_SuperView)


}

LandScape Orientation Function

    func applyLandScapeConstraint(){

    self.view.removeConstraint(self.RedViewHeight)
    self.view.removeConstraint(self.RedView_VerticalSpace_To_BlueView)
    self.view.removeConstraint(self.RedView_LeadingSpace_To_SuperView)
   self.view.removeConstraint(self.BlueView_TrailingSpace_To_SuperView)

    self.view.addConstraint(self.RedViewWidth)
    self.view.addConstraint(self.RedView_HorizontalSpace_To_BlueView)
    self.view.addConstraint(self.RedView_BottomSpace_To_SuperView)
    self.view.addConstraint(self.BlueView_TopSpace_To_SuperView)

}

Hope it will Help to Understand it through Layout Managment through coding. If you still not able to Understand then Please Check my Code on

If you have warnings just set height and width's constraint priority to 999.
