Append Items to SfListView Manually in Descending order


I have the below SfListView in my MAUI app

It has two Labels and one Image (from Image Source).

The data is inserted to the SfListView every second using Dispatcher.CreateTimer()

How can I insert items to the SfListView without having to refresh it and to make sure the last inserted items show first so the user doesn't need to scroll to the end just to see the recent item.

Hi Jassim,

# Regarding Refresh listview while adding items ,

We would like to let you know that , it is necessary to refresh the listview while adding the items to update UI view, if you are adding the bulk items to list, you can invoke the BeginInit() and EndInit() method to restrict the refresh action for each item added and refresh the list after adding the item.

Please refer the below documentation for more reference.

#Regarding Adding and scroll to new item

SfListView allows you to add the item at desire position by using the insert() method, Please refer the code snippet for more information

Code snippet:

void Button_Clicked(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)


        vm.Items.Insert(0, new Item


            Name = "NewItem"



Also If you want to scroll to the new item , you can use programmatic scrolling of listview to scroll to desired position, the below documentation explains about the Programmatic scrolling ,

Please let us know if you have any concern,
