How to Implement Pull-to-Refresh in Mobile Applications


A common pattern in mobile applications is to allow a user to refresh the data in a List by pulling down on the List past the top of the List and if the user pulls down past some threshold value, to trigger a List refresh once the user releases the List, and it bounces back to its initial position.

Thanks to Alpha Anywhere's RMAD (Rapid Mobile Application Development) features, complex, but common, development patterns like pull-to-refresh are easy to add to your mobile apps. In this video we show how you can implement the 'pull-past-end-to-refresh' pattern in an Alpha Anywhere List control.
