    Get current selected row. May be helpful if you have only one section.

    - (NSUInteger)currentSellectedRowIndex
        NSIndexPath *selectedIndexPath = [self.tableView indexPathForSelectedRow];
        if (selectedIndexPath) {
            return selectedIndexPath.row;
        else {
            return NSNotFound;

    Use this code

    CGPoint location =[sender locationInView:self.tableView];
    NSIndexPath *swipedIndexPath = [self.tableView indexPathForRowAtPoint:location];
    UITableViewCell *swipedCell  = [self.tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:swipedIndexPath];
    NSIndexPath *indexPath = [self.tableView indexPathForCell:swipedCell];

    In didSelectRowAtIndexPath, set an interface declared NSIndexPath as the indexpath returned. Then you can scroll to that variable. If you need help, comment and I can give some sample code.

    Swift 4.2

    let selectedIndexPath = tableView.indexPathForSelectedRow

    which is an optional return value.
