Hello everyone,

When we using left mouse, to change the view angle in Rviz, then is this possible, to get the orientation of that view.

Are you asking how to get the transformation matrix of the camera that rviz is using to view from a specific location? Also I think you have a typo in your title. I think you meant to have a "get the" before "orientation", and a '?'

Rviz does not expose the pose of the viewpoint camera. If you're interested in this feature, you can file a feature request in trac. You find a link on the bottom of the wiki

A ticket has been filed by someone else who wants this feature:

rviz camera: getting and setting the viewpoint

I expect we'll get it implemented in the next few weeks.
