The first thing I think of is maybe you're outside the scope to get the Listview attached to the activity or fragment, try attaching that method call to the activity or fragment you're displaying in, like MainActivity.getListView() or maybe MainActivity.this.getListView()?

MainActivity.getListView() worked! Thank you!
