The following code snippet from the complete code sample iterates on a collection of IMessengerGroup objects. Each individual group is passed into the createGroupListItem(IMessengerGroup) and a ListViewGroup item is returned. The new ListViewGroup, groupItem is added to the Items collection of the ListView, contactListView.

contactGroups = (IMessengerGroups)communicator.MyGroups;
 if (contactGroups != null)
 {
    foreach (IMessengerGroup contactGroupItem in contactGroups)
    {
      ListViewGroup newGroup = createGroupListItem(contactGroupItem);
      contactListView.Groups.Add(newGroup);
      ListViewItem groupItem = new ListViewItem(newGroup);
      contactListView.Items.Add(groupItem);
    }
 }
