UITableView Refresh without scrolling

I have a

_TableView
with items , and I want to set automatic refresh,and I don't want it to scroll on refresh , lets say user scrolled 2 pages down , and the refresh trigered -> so I want to put the refreshed content to the top of the table without interupting user's scrolling

Assume user was on row 18
and now the
_dataSource
is refreshed so it fetched lets say 4 items , so I want user to stay on the item he was.

What would be the best approach to achieve it ??

Answer

I am showing if only one row is being added. You can extend it to multiple rows.

    // dataArray is your data Source object
    [dataArray insertObject:name atIndex:0];
    CGPoint contentOffset = self.tableView.contentOffset;
    contentOffset.y += [self tableView:self.tableView heightForRowAtIndexPath:[NSIndexPath indexPathForRow:0 inSection:0]];
    [self.tableView reloadData];
    [self.tableView setContentOffset:contentOffset];

But for this to work you need to have defined - (CGFloat)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView heightForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath the method. Or else, you can directly give your tableview row height if it is constant.
