how do i update a label in createLabel regularly when the user has internet connection?

i plan to update the Label text regularly when the user have internet connection, how can i do that in appcelerator?

i dont want to use webviews because i found a caution in the api documentation that the webview is much slower than the native api in appcelerator.

    fire an event when the internet status changes. In that event update the label text

    Ti.App.fireEvent('inet_status', {statusStr:'change in status!'});

    Listen for the event with the UILabel

    inetStatus.addEventListener("inet_status", function(data) {
       inetStatus.text = data.statusStr;
