How do I flip a list so it generates from the bottom-up?

Building a chat screen. I have the message list working fine but it comes from the top of the screen and goes down. Can I flip it so the first item starts at the bottom and populates up, like how many chat systems work?

You can use filter for sorting the items.

There is a tutorial on this in the Help:

Your specific question is also addressed here:

Reverse scroll

  • This is a common option for chat or messaging screens where you want the bottom of the list to be visible when the user gets to the screen and they need to scroll up to see earlier messages

I think my problem was a misunderstanding of how chat screens function. Everything is working fine now.

You can use sort old to new
