I have a TextView (called tv) which is a child element of a ScrollView (called sv). When I add text to tv, I want to be able to scroll down. I've tried using sv.fullScroll(View.FOCUS_DOWN) and also sv.scrollTo(value1, value2). This doesn't work, if I try tv.scrollTo(value1, value2), it doesn't scroll at all and doesn't show any response. I can't work out the proper way to do this, any help is appreciated.
