The Xamarin.Forms pull-to-refresh control provides a panel that can be pulled to refresh the data in an application. It can be done either through user interaction or programmatically. It has the ability to load any complex views or layouts in its pulling pane and allows the user to pull down from the top of the view. Furthermore, the appearance and transition of the progress indicator can be customized.

Transition Types

Animate transitions between the pulling pane and the refresh indicator when performing a pull operation. The two types of built-in transitions are:

  • Slide-on-Top — Slides the progress animation over the pulling pane.
  • Push — Pushes the pulling pane to display the progress animation.

ListView pull to refresh

Load a ListView control, even one with a complex template, in the pulling pane and refresh the data by pulling down from the top of the ListView.
