Pull to fresh with circular progress view as used in the Beamly iOS app.


This version of the pull to refresh feature can be used both on UITableViews and UICollectionViews and it has been inspired by Sam Vermette's SVPullToRefresh.

When dealing with a custom pull to refresh view, often the native UIRefreshControl is not ideal as it is not customizable. A common customization besides the pull to refresh, is to have a circular progress view with the logo of the app to show during the dragging. This version of the pull to refresh allows to preserve the contentInset on the scrollview.

Try out the included demo project or just run pod try BMYCircularProgressPullToRefresh to give it a try.

Simple usage:

  • copy all the classes in the BMYCircularProgressPullToRefresh folder into your project or install via CocoaPods adding the following line to your Podfile
pod "BMYCircularProgressPullToRefresh"
  • import BMYCircularProgressPullToRefresh.h in your (view controller) class
  • add the pull to refresh feature as so (you probably want to do to in the viewDidLoad method):
UIImage *logoImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"bicon.png"];
UIImage *backCircleImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"light_circle.png"];
UIImage *frontCircleImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"dark_circle.png"];
BMYCircularProgressView *progressView = [[BMYCircularProgressView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, 25, 25)
[self.scrollView setPullToRefreshWithHeight:60.0f actionHandler:^(BMYPullToRefreshView *pullToRefreshView){
	// reload logic, call the following line when work is done 
    [pullToRefreshView stopAnimating];

[self.scrollView.pullToRefreshView setPreserveContentInset:YES];
[self.scrollView.pullToRefreshView setProgressView:progressView];
- (void)dealloc {
    [self.scrollView tearDownPullToRefresh];
