Is it possible to flip between Portrait layout and Landscape Layout in the same App?

We are trying to integrate a couple of Apps, one of which has to be in portrait layout, while the other has to be in landscape layout.

Is is possible to do this within one App?

 

I have looked here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/create-responsive-layout

 

It seems to say it is :  If the user resizes the browser window (or rotates the device if you've turned off Lock orientation), the values of these properties change dynamically. The formulas in the screen's Width and Height properties are reevaluated when these values change.

 

I want to keep the orientation locked, but use a Portrait orientation for some screens & a Landscape orientation for others.

Hi @stapes ,

No, you cannot change the canvas size or orientation dynamically.

@WarrenBelz This might not be an issue if the Barcode Scanner worked, but we are instead being forced to use separate barcode scanners, which require the portrait orientation. My Warehouse maps are in landscape. I am going to experiment with the Launch and Param functions to see if I can switch between apps. The only objection to this solution is that we have to pay 2 licenses to run 2 apps.
