Add new items to top of an android ListView
//Method onRefresh() from SwipeRefreshLayout.OnRefreshListener
public void onRefresh() {
// I'm using Retrofit, so this is the way I get new data from the server
new RestAdapter().get().getItems(new Callback<List<Foo>>() {
public void success(List<Foo> foos, Response response) {
// IMPORTANT: This is important to add new items at the top of the listview
adapter.addMoreItems(0, foos);
int index = listView.getFirstVisiblePosition() + foos.size();
int top = (listView.getChildAt(0) == null) ? 0 : listView.getChildAt(0).getTop();
listView.setSelectionFromTop(index, top);
public void failure(RetrofitError error) { }
