UITableView - scroll to the top


In my table view I have to scroll to the top. But I cannot guarantee that the first object is going to be section 0, row 0. May be that my table view will start from section number 5.

So I get an exception, when I call:

[mainTableView scrollToRowAtIndexPath:[NSIndexPath indexPathForRow:0 inSection:0] atScrollPosition:UITableViewScrollPositionTop animated:NO];

Is there another way to scroll to the top of table view?


UITableView is a subclass of UIScrollView, so you can also use:

[mainTableView scrollRectToVisible:CGRectMake(0, 0, 1, 1) animated:YES];


[mainTableView setContentOffset:CGPointZero animated:YES];

And in Swift:

mainTableView.setContentOffset(CGPointZero, animated:true)

And in Swift 3:

mainTableView.setContentOffset(CGPoint.zero, animated: true)

I prefer

[mainTableView setContentOffset:CGPointZero animated:YES];

If you have a top inset on your table view, you have to subtract it:

[mainTableView setContentOffset:CGPointMake(0.0f, -mainTableView.contentInset.top) animated:YES];

For tables that have a contentInset, setting the content offset to CGPointZero will not work. It'll scroll to the content top vs. scrolling to the table top.

Taking content inset into account produces this instead:

[tableView setContentOffset:CGPointMake(0, -tableView.contentInset.top) animated:NO];
