NativeScript 8.2 : Cannot read property 'portrait' of undefined

Issue

I am using NativeScript-Orientation-Free Plugin in my NativeScript version 8.2 Application.

My app is compiling fine with "tns run ios" but
I am getting below Error on the run time and my app crashes When I am trying to set the orientation

Component

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import * as devOrientation from 'nativescript-orientation-free';

import { Item } from './item'
import { ItemService } from './item.service'

@Component({
  selector: 'ns-items',
  templateUrl: './items.component.html',
})
export class ItemsComponent implements OnInit {
  items: Array<Item>

  constructor(private itemService: ItemService) {}

  ngOnInit(): void {
    this.items = this.itemService.getItems();
    devOrientation.setOrientation("portrait");
  }
}

Error

}

i do not want to use this paid version NativeScript-Orientation. can anyone tell me how can I fix or what i am missing or do we have any alternate to set the orientation?

Solution

i removed the third party plugins for orientation and setting it like this

UIDevice.currentDevice.setValueForKey(currentOrientation, "orientation");
