A widget that supports the Material "swipe to refresh" idiom.

When the child's Scrollable descendant overscrolls, an animated circular progress indicator is faded into view. When the scroll ends, if the indicator has been dragged far enough for it to become completely opaque, the onRefresh callback is called. The callback is expected to update the scrollable's contents and then complete the Future it returns. The refresh indicator disappears after the callback's Future has completed.

If the Scrollable might not have enough content to overscroll, consider settings its physics property to AlwaysScrollableScrollPhysics:

new ListView(
  physics: const AlwaysScrollableScrollPhysics(),
  children: ...

Using AlwaysScrollableScrollPhysics will ensure that the scroll view is always scrollable and, therefore, can trigger the RefreshIndicator.

A RefreshIndicator can only be used with a vertical scroll view.

Creates a refresh indicator. [...]


backgroundColor Color
The progress indicator's background color. The current theme's ThemeData.canvasColor by default.
child Widget
The refresh indicator will be stacked on top of this child. The indicator will appear when child's Scrollable descendant is over-scrolled.
color Color
The progress indicator's foreground color. The current theme's ThemeData.accentColor by default.
displacement double
The distance from the child's top or bottom edge to where the refresh indicator will settle. During the drag that exposes the refresh indicator, its actual displacement may significantly exceed this value.
notificationPredicate ScrollNotificationPredicate
A check that specifies whether a ScrollNotification should be handled by this widget. [...]
onRefresh RefreshCallback
A function that's called when the user has dragged the refresh indicator far enough to demonstrate that they want the app to refresh. The returned Future must complete when the refresh operation is finished.
