Bug 996 - add a tag to the sdl view on iphone

As Sam suggested, i’m posting here the solution to a feature request
when you use sdl over a custom objc interface
it may be useful/necessary to get the uiview that hosts the sdl
rendering eg. for rotating only on certain directions
i intially set it up using a tag inside the library but it wasn’t
really a clean procedure: in the end i resorted to

UIView *sdlView = nil;
for (UIView *oneView in [[[UIApplication sharedApplication] keyWindow]

if ([oneView isMemberOfClass:[SDL_uikitopenglview class]]) {
sdlView = (UIView *)oneView;

if anyone has a better solution please share :slight_smile:
Hope this helps
