How to disable "pull to refresh" action and use only indicator?

I enabled "pull to refresh" to my project using the

SwipeRefreshLayout
.

When I move down, appear the loading indicator (material design style). I know, it must so work, but I want to disable this function, and start refreshing by click some button and use
SwipeRefreshLayout
loading indicator.

How I can to do this?

Answer

From the documentation:

If an activity wishes to show just the progress animation, it should call setRefreshing(true). To disable the gesture and progress animation, call setEnabled(false) on the view.

So to show the animation:

swiprefreshLayout.setEnabled( true );
swiperefreshLayout.setRefreshing( true );

And to hide the animation:

swiperefreshLayout.setRefreshing( false );
swiprefreshLayout.setEnabled( false );
