Very difficult to implement SfPullToRefresh

I'd like to ask for some help in using the SfPullToRefresh control. I have already read the documentation and the following thread with attached example: https://www.syncfusion.com/forums/xamarin.forms/sfpulltorefresh

Though the docs say it's easy to implement, I find it very difficult to use this control (and I'm not a newbie). Both the latter example and the code shown in the documentation produce a blank result for me. The official example uses a totally custom page that is not useful outside that sample and that makes it unclear about implementing the control.

I'd simply like to have a pullable, data-bound ListView with an activity indicator. I've placed a ListView as the PullableContent for the control, but I get nothing. I've placed a Grid and/or StackLayout as the ListView container to the PullableContent, but nothing.

Please the community needs easier and clearer examples. Thanks for any help.

"Both the latter example and the code shown in the documentation produce a blank result for me."

I'm getting a completely blank screen as well regardless of what type of content I add to the PullableContent property. I've set a background color for SFPullToRefresh and can verify that it gets added to the view properly. It just doesn't display my content. 

In my opinion this is a broken component. One should simply need to install the DLL's and wrap any type of content in SFPullToRefresh.

Hi Brad,

Query 1: "latter example produce a blank result for me"

The sample which you have referred for PullToRefresh is contains only iOS project. Now we have created the sample in both Android and iOS platforms. Please find the sample from below location.


Query 2: "code shown in the documentation produce a blank result"

Can you check whether the required assemblies are added in android project like below link.
