Same problem here - on iOS, the ListView scrolls to top if items are added.
Using Xamarin.Forms 2.0.0 and iOS 9.1
Comment 3 Sascha Schwegelbauer 2015-11-19 12:20:55 UTC
Edit to my comment: only happens, when IsRefreshing is bound.

Same problem here - on iOS, the ListView scrolls to top if items are added and BeginRefresh / EndRefresh is called.
Using Xamarin.Forms and iOS 9.3

var items = new ObservableCollection<string>();
Action addMoreItems = () => {
    var count = 10;
    while (count-- > 0)

var list = new ListView();
list.ItemsSource = items;
list.ItemAppearing += (s, e) =>
    if (list.IsRefreshing || items[items.Count - 1] != (string)e.Item) return;
Comment 5 adrianknight89 2016-10-06 16:59:05 UTC
I'm not an iOS expert, but I don't think that's a bug but rather expected behavior. BeginRefresh() or IsRefreshing are meant to be used in pull-to-refresh use case. If you are simply adding items to the collection, do not bother using them.

Probably Android works differently.

Again, maybe I'm wrong, but I'm not sure if I'd use refresh in this scenario.
Comment 6 adrianknight89 2016-10-06 17:01:17 UTC
If XCode / iOS build behaves differently than XF, then we should treat this as a bug.
Comment 7 Shane 2016-10-07 19:44:05 UTC
Not sure if your last comment there is specific to "buchholz.bastian@googlemail.com" or the bug in general.

I brought this up to Xamarin originally last year after I converted a Xamarin iOS project to Xamarin Forms. The original didn't have this issue but when I used a Xamarin Forms list view it did have this issue

also the attached sample


Doesn't do anything with BeginRefresh or IsRefreshing

I'm not able to reproduce this issue of the ListView changing scroll position using
