    I'm linking a backgroundworker that sync data from a web service with the pull to refresh feature in a DataBoundListBox in the page. However I'd like to invoke automatically that syncing when I enter the page for the first time, and to have a consistent representation of what is happening in the UI, I'd like to "invoke" manually the pull to refresh so the graphical element will be visible.

    Is there anyway I can do that?

    Hello Francisco,

    Thanks for writing and for your question.

    Currently the Pull-to-refresh user experience can be activated only by interacting with DataBoundListBox, i.e. no API is available for showing the loading animation on top of the list. The point of this feature is to visually guide the user through a pull-to-refresh process which can be started by manipulating the list's contents.

    We can consider extending the API to make it possible for the developer to also activate the feature programmatically.

    Let me know if you have further questions or need assistance.

    I just ran into this. I think it would be very helpful for continuity of UX. I have a user press to go to an edit form on complete I send them back to the list view but need to refresh it to show the item they just edited filtered. The same refresh animations would be good for continuity.
