In this article, we are going to write a python script for screen rotation and implement it with GUI. 

The display can be modified to four orientations using some methods from the rotatescreen module, it is a small Python package for rotating the screen in a system.

Installation:

pip install rotate-screen

Approach:

Step 1) Import the required module in the python script.

Python3




# Import required module
import rotatescreen

 
Step 2) Create an object of rotatescreen.get_primary_display() to access the main screen of the system. 

Python3




# Accessing the main screen
rotate_screen = rotatescreen.get_primary_display()

 
Step 3) Now use various methods to rotate the screen.

  • set_landscape(), Rotate Up
  • set_portrait_flipped(), Rotate Left
  • set_landscape_flipped(), Rotate Down
  • set_portrait(), Rotate Right

Python3




# Methods to change orientation
 
# for landscape
rotate_screen.set_landscape()
 
# portrait at left
rotate_screen.set_portrait_flipped()
 
# landscape at down
rotate_screen.set_landscape_flipped()
 
# portrait at right
rotate_screen.set_portrait()

 
Below is the complete program of the above approach along with GUI implementation.

Python3




# Import required modules
from tkinter import *
import rotatescreen
 
 
# User defined function
# for rotating screen
def Screen_rotation(temp):
    screen = rotatescreen.get_primary_display()
    if temp == "up":
        screen.set_landscape()
    elif temp == "right":
        screen.set_portrait_flipped()
    elif temp == "down":
        screen.set_landscape_flipped()
    elif temp == "left":
        screen.set_portrait()
 
 
# Creating tkinter object
master = Tk()
master.geometry("100x100")
master.title("Screen Rotation")
master.configure(bg='light grey')
 
 
# Variable classes in tkinter
result = StringVar()
 
 
# Creating buttons to change orientation
Button(master, text="Up", command=lambda: Screen_rotation(
    "up"), bg="white").grid(row=0, column=3)
Button(master, text="Right", command=lambda: Screen_rotation(
    "right"), bg="white").grid(row=1, column=6)
Button(master, text="Left", command=lambda: Screen_rotation(
    "left"), bg="white").grid(row=1, column=2)
Button(master, text="Down", command=lambda: Screen_rotation(
    "down"), bg="white").grid(row=3, column=3)
 
 
mainloop()
