Implementing PullToRefresh with a ScrollView as the PullableContent

I am trying to implement PullToRefresh functionality with a Xamarin.Forms.ScrollView component as the PullableContent.


While it mostly works, it gets confused between the ScrollView and the PullToRefresh. A quick flick down triggers the PullToRefresh while a slower press and pull down tends to trigger the ScrollView mechanism.

Any ides on how to implement this?

Hi Andrew,  
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.  
We have checked the reported issue “when pulling is performed with a slower press, pull to refresh does not occur when ScrollView is added as the PullableContent” from our side. Unfortunately the reported issue does not reproduced at our end. We have prepared the sample based on the information provided by loading ScrollView as the pullable content. We have attached the tested sample for your reference and you can download the same from the following location. 
Could you please check with above sample whether the reported issue replicate in our sample also.? If not, we would request you to modify the attached sample or could you please share the following details which would be better to provide appropriate solution. 
  • Properties that set to the SfPullToRefresh.
  • Content loaded in ScrollView
  • Platform and device details.
  • Replication procedure to reproduce the issue.

Thank you for your sample application. In my testing this works perfectly. However I have done further investigation and have found that this issue happens seemingly randomly when I have a main page that has a SfPullToRefresh control with a SfListView as the PullableContent. When an item is tapped in the SfListView, it takes me to a details page which has a SfPullToRefresh which has the ScrollView as the PullableContent. The PullToRefresh component will sometime not work at all on the detail page.

The issue seems to depend on what position the main pages list view is when the detail page is opened. I have put together a sample application to demonstrate the issue.

Sequence to show issue>
Scroll so Book 8 is in the middle of the page and tap it.
Pull to refresh is working on detail page.
Got back
Scroll to Book 17 is at the bottom of the screen but visible and tap it.
Pull to refresh doesn't work.
None of the other pages will work until the main page pull to refresh is triggered.

Please let me know if you have any questions on this sample.

Hi Jayaleshwari,

Thanks for the prompt response. Would it be possible to come up with some workaround or patch before then? We are hoping to release our application sometime in early January so would ideally need this fixed before then.

Just wondering if this issue has been fixed and released yet? I updated the sample/demo app with version but that still has the same issue.

Kind Regards
