Getting Started with .NET MAUI PullToRefresh (SfPullToRefresh)

This section provides a quick overview of how to get started with the .NET MAUI PullToRefresh (SfPullToRefresh) for MAUI and a walk-through to configure the .NET MAUI PullToRefresh control in a real-time scenario.

Creating an application using the .NET MAUI PullToRefresh

  1. Create a new .NET MAUI application in Visual Studio.
  2. Syncfusion .NET MAUI components are available on nuget.org. To add SfPullToRefresh to your project, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio, search for Syncfusion.Maui.PullToRefresh and install it.
  3. Import the control namespace Syncfusion.Maui.PullToRefresh in XAML or C# code.
  4. Initialize the SfPullToRefresh control.
<ContentPage
        xmlns:syncfusion="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Maui.PullToRefresh;assembly=Syncfusion.Maui.PullToRefresh">
        <syncfusion:SfPullToRefresh />
    </ContentPage>
using Syncfusion.Maui.PullToRefresh;
    . . .

    public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
    {
        public MainPage()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            SfPullToRefresh pullToRefresh = new SfPullToRefresh();
            this.Content = pullToRefresh;
        }
    }

Register the handler

The Syncfusion.Maui.Core NuGet is a dependent package for all Syncfusion controls of .NET MAUI. In the MauiProgram.cs file, register the handler for Syncfusion core.

using Microsoft.Maui.Controls.Hosting;
    using Microsoft.Maui.Controls.Xaml;
    using Microsoft.Maui.Hosting;
    using Syncfusion.Maui.Core.Hosting;

    namespace GettingStarted
    {
        public class MauiProgram 
        {
            public static MauiApp CreateMauiApp()
            {
                var builder = MauiApp.CreateBuilder();
                builder
                    .UseMauiApp<App>()
                    .ConfigureFonts(fonts =>
                    {
                        fonts.AddFont("OpenSans-Regular.ttf", "OpenSansRegular");
                    });

                builder.ConfigureSyncfusionCore();
                return builder.Build();
            }
        }
    }

Defining PullableConent

SfPullToRefresh.PullableContent view serves as the designated area where users can initiate the pull-to-refresh action, enabling them to refresh and update the content within the view.

Refer to the following code example for PulltoRefresh.

<ContentPage xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/dotnet/2021/maui"
                xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2009/xaml"
                x:Class="GettingStarted.MainPage"
                xmlns:syncfusion="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Maui.PullToRefresh;assembly=Syncfusion.Maui.PullToRefresh">

        <syncfusion:SfPullToRefresh x:Name="pullToRefresh">
            <syncfusion:SfPullToRefresh.PullableContent>
                <StackLayout>
                    <Label Text="sample page" />
                </StackLayout>
            </syncfusion:SfPullToRefresh.PullableContent>
        </syncfusion:SfPullToRefresh>
    </ContentPage>
namespace GettingStarted
    {
        public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
        {
            public MainPage()
            {
                InitializeComponent();
                this.pullToRefresh.Refreshing += PullToRefresh_Refreshing;
            }

            private async void PullToRefresh_Refreshing(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                this.pullToRefresh.IsRefreshing = true;
                await Task.Delay(2000);
                this.pullToRefresh.IsRefreshing = false;
            }
        }
    }

.NET MAUI PullToRefresh with slide on top transition mode

NOTE

View sample in GitHub.

If we run the above sample with TransitionMode set to Push, the output will be as shown in the following.

NOTE

PullToRefresh does not have a view. So, it is mandatory to set size or LayoutOptions when loaded inside any layouts.
