I am trying to figure out how to force a particular view of my application to be landscape even if the is user is holding it in a portrait view. I only want this view to occur when the user is watching a video. So in other words I do not want to force the app to always being landscape mode by changing parameters in the flex-app.xml... I would only like it to occur when the user has navigated to a particular view. Is this possible if so how... can any one guide me in the right direction for how to accomplish this.
So I think I found it...
which I called from my view when the viewActivateHandle is called.
Use : stage.setAspectRatio(StageAspectRatio.LANDSCAPE);
