    I have found solution here Retaining position in ListView after calling notifyDataSetChanged

    Sorry for duplicate question.
    The final code is this:

        int index = this.commentsListView.getFirstVisiblePosition() + comments.size();
        View v = this.commentsListView.getChildAt(commentsListView.getHeaderViewsCount());
        int top = (v == null) ? 0 : v.getTop();         
        this.commentsListView.setSelectionFromTop(index, top);

    May be this is what you are looking for:


    “This makes list automatically scroll to the bottom when a data set change notification is received and only if the last item is already visible on screen.” – as quoted here

    Also have a look at ListView’s method public void setSelection (int position). After you added new comments, and notified your adapter, you can use it to keep the current item selected.

    // Get the current selected index
    int previousSelectedIndex = yourListView.getSelectedItemPosition();
    // Change your adapter
    // Determine how many elements you just inserted
    int numberOfInsertedItems = comments.size();
    // Update the selected position
    yourListView.setSelection(previousSelectedIndex + numberOfInsertedItems);

    NOTE: Code is untested. Good luck
