android – How to implement "Swipe down to refresh" like in new GMail app

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

Google release the new Gmail app with an alternate way to handle pull down to refresh.

Instead of showing the started hidden row that is pulled down. Gmail displays an animated message overtop of the action bar.

The message includes an animated horizontal line.

Is this a standard feature of the Android SDK? I can’t find anything in the action bar API that would do this.

How to&Answers:

Chris Banes’ ActionBar-PullToRefresh library on GitHub probably offers pull-to-refresh functionality closest to GMail app.

See also: Juhani Lehtimäki’s analysis of GMail pull-to-refresh.

Answer:

Google has released support for this directly in the SDK. I am not sure of what version you need to support (that may be an issue).

Check out the official SDK feature info here: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/support/v4/widget/SwipeRefreshLayout.html

If you are able to use the SDK one, you will be better off, even Chris Banes wrote a post, suggesting the same.

Answer:

try this…it’s work for me.

res/layout/activity_main.xml

 <FrameLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:id="@+id/container"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
tools:context="com.swipetorefresh.MainActivity"
tools:ignore="MergeRootFrame" />

res/layout/fragment_main.xml

<android.support.v4.widget.SwipeRefreshLayout           
       xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
      xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
      android:id="@+id/container"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="match_parent"
       tools:ignore="MergeRootFrame" >

   <ListView
      android:id="@android:id/list"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="match_parent" />

</android.support.v4.widget.SwipeRefreshLayout>

MainActivity.java

  public class MainActivity extends Activity {

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    if (savedInstanceState == null) {
        getFragmentManager().beginTransaction()
                .add(R.id.container, new PlaceholderFragment()).commit();
    }
}

public static class PlaceholderFragment extends ListFragment implements OnRefreshListener {

    private SwipeRefreshLayout mSwipeRefreshLayout;

    private static final int LIST_ITEM_COUNT = 5;
    private int mOffset = 0;

    private ArrayAdapter<String> mListAdapter;

    public PlaceholderFragment() {
    }

    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
            Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_main, container,
                false);

        // Configure the swipe refresh layout
        mSwipeRefreshLayout = (SwipeRefreshLayout) rootView.findViewById(R.id.container);
        mSwipeRefreshLayout.setOnRefreshListener(this);
        mSwipeRefreshLayout.setColorScheme(
                R.color.swipe_color_1, R.color.swipe_color_2,
                R.color.swipe_color_3, R.color.swipe_color_4);

        // Put the first batch of countries in the list
        mListAdapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(
                getActivity(),
                android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1,
                android.R.id.text1,
                getCountries(mOffset));

        setListAdapter(mListAdapter);

        return rootView;
    }

    private List<String> getCountries(int offset) {
        ArrayList<String> countriesList = new ArrayList<String>();
        for(int i=0; i<LIST_ITEM_COUNT;i++){
            countriesList.add(COUNTRIES[offset+i]);
        }

        mOffset = offset + LIST_ITEM_COUNT;
        return countriesList;
    }

    @Override
    public void onRefresh() {
        // Start showing the refresh animation
        mSwipeRefreshLayout.setRefreshing(true);

        // Simulate a long running activity
        new Handler().postDelayed(new Runnable() {
            @Override
            public void run() {
               updateCountries();
            }
        }, 5000);
    }



    private void updateCountries() {

        // Add the next batch of countries to the list
        mListAdapter.addAll(getCountries(mOffset));

        // Signify that we are done refreshing
        mSwipeRefreshLayout.setRefreshing(false);
    }



    private static final String[] COUNTRIES = {"Afghanistan",
        "Albania", "Algeria", "American Samoa", "Andorra", "Angola",
        "Anguilla", "Antarctica", "Antigua and Barbuda", "Argentina",

        }
   }

Answer:

Chris Banes ( the same guy who implemented the best pull to refresh component for android) also implemented the Gmail like Pull To Refresh.

You can find it here: https://github.com/chrisbanes/ActionBar-PullToRefresh

Note that this project is still under development so the current API may change.

Answer:

Answer:

Test it.
Using:
swipeRefreshLayout.setRotation(180f);

And in your adapter ListView, method getView:
view.setRotation(180f);

invert order of your items in List.

Or using directly android:rotation=”180″ in xml.
