Default Update Listview after Thread

Hi, I really dont fine a solution....
I like that my listview GUI appears immediatly when the app starts.
Than load some new data in the Background Thread and update the Listview when done. But always when the Thread is done, the Listview keeps unchanged.

Bellow an sample (if fixed) that would be help to finish my Project.

thanks chris
