A review is given of experimental findings and theoretical understanding of micromagnetic properties of zinc-blende ferromagnetic semiconductors, with (Ga,Mn)As taken as a sole example. It is emphasised that the Zener p-d model explains quantitatively the effect of strain on the easy axis direction as well as it predicts correctly the presence of the reorientation transition, observed as a function of hole concentration and temperature. Possible suggestions put forward to explain the existence of in-plane uniaxial magnetocrystalline anisotropy are then quoted.
