Update/Refresh adapter

I'm trying to create a listview that can update items dynamically.

Here is my code:

            list_item.ItemClick += async delegate (object sender, AdapterView.ItemClickEventArgs e)
                int num = 1;
                var items = new Model
                    api1 = list_model[e.Position].var1,
                    api2 = list_model[e.Position].var2,
                    api3 = list_model[e.Position].var3,
                    api4 = list_model[e.Position].var4,
                    api5 = list_model[e.Position].var5 - num,

                var client = new HttpClient();
                var data = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(items);
                var content = new StringContent(data, Encoding.UTF8, "application/json");
                var response = await client.PostAsync("" + list_model[e.Position].apiID, content);
                Toast.MakeText(this, response.StatusCode.ToString(), ToastLength.Short).Show();

                //Clearing the adapter
                //Calling the updated adapter
                list_item.Adapter = lop;


In this code, I push an update request on the api, clearing the current list view data, and getting again the data that is already updated.
But its not working in my case, idk why but I might miss some codes or i skips some steps.
I also try "RunOnUiThread(()=>)" but nothing happened.

Thanks in advance :)

    What is list_model? Is it a list that holds the view data?
    If so, you have only modified the value of list_model. You need to modify the adapter.
    For example:

            ListView listView = FindViewById<ListView>(Resource.Id.listView1);
            List<string> countries = new List<string>() {
                "Afghanistan","Albania","Algeria","American Samoa","Andorra",
                "Angola","Anguilla","Antarctica","Antigua and Barbuda","Argentina",
            ArrayAdapter<string> lstAdapter = new ArrayAdapter<string> (this, Resource.Layout.layout1, countries);
            listView.Adapter = lstAdapter;
            listView.ItemClick +=  delegate (object sender, AdapterView.ItemClickEventArgs e)
                countries[e.Position] = "AAA";

    And the result is:
