The Xamarin Pull-to-Refresh control is a panel that can be pulled to refresh 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 users 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.

DataGrid pull to refresh

Load complex views such as the DataGrid or any other custom layouts in the pulling pane and refresh the data through a pulling action. You can also customize the built-in pulling transition animation.

Customize the appearance of the progress indicator for a better user experience. Choose from built-in transition modes to achieve a platform-specific native look and feel.

Customize the following aspects:

  • Background color, stroke color, and stroke width of the progress indicator.
  • Height and width of the progress view.
  • Pulling threshold (distance of the pulling transition).
  • Refresh content threshold (starting position of the progress view).
