Reloading contents of Listview frequently

Postby neha naik » Mon Mar 24, 2008 6:03 am


I am working on an application which implements google talk.
As soon as any contact comes online i need to change the gui of the Listview which i am using to display the contacts.
Like, if the contact comes online, that contact should be shown in green and then white once it goes offline.
I did read the solution given at the following urls, but could not understand where to put the thread code. ... -t537.html

I am pasting my code here, please help me understand the place where the additional code should be written.

Thanks in advance.
