This example demonstrate about How to handle orientation change android

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:app = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
   xmlns:tools = "http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width = "match_parent"
   android:gravity = "center"
   android:layout_height = "match_parent"
   tools:context = ".MainActivity"
   android:orientation = "vertical">
   <TextView
      android:id = "@+id/actionEvent"
      android:textSize = "40sp"
      android:layout_marginTop = "30dp"
      android:layout_width = "wrap_content"
      android:layout_height = "match_parent" />
</LinearLayout>

In the above code, we have taken text view to show orientation changes.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.myapplication;
import android.content.res.Configuration;
import android.os.Build;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.RequiresApi;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   TextView actionEvent;
   @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.LOLLIPOP)
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      actionEvent = findViewById(R.id.actionEvent);
   }
   @Override
   public void onConfigurationChanged(Configuration newConfig) {
      super.onConfigurationChanged(newConfig);
      if (newConfig.orientation == Configuration.ORIENTATION_LANDSCAPE) {
         actionEvent.setText("ORIENTATION LANDSCAPE");
      } else {
         actionEvent.setText("ORIENTATION PORTRAIT");
      }
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to manifest.xml

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   package = "com.example.myapplication">
   <application
      android:allowBackup = "true"
      android:icon = "@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android:label = "@string/app_name"
      android:roundIcon = "@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android:supportsRtl = "true"
      android:theme = "@style/AppTheme">
      <activity android:name = ".MainActivity"
         android:configChanges = "keyboardHidden|orientation|screenSize">
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name = "android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <action android:name = "android.net.conn.CONNECTIVITY_CHANGE" />
            <category android:name = "android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
         </intent-filter>
      </activity>
   </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen –
