Xamarin.Tips – Xamarin.Forms iOS ListView Refresh Spinner Color

Here’s a quick freebie. If you want to change the color of your ListView Refreshing spinner, we can do that with a quick custom renderer!

Here it is as a renderer:


    /// Custom renderer for all list views to use the custom loader color
    /// </summary>

    public class ColoredRefreshListViewRenderer : ListViewRenderer
        /// Set the loader color to your custom color
        /// </summary>
        protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<ListView> e)
            var vc = ((UITableViewController)ViewController);

            // Set the color!
            if (vc?.RefreshControl != null)
                vc.RefreshControl.TintColor = UIColor.FromRGB(135, 200, 21);

Now we get something looking awesome like this:
