Android listview updating too many times

view full story

http://stackoverflow.com – In my main-activity layout (RelativeLayout), I display three listviews of vertical orientation among other Buttons and Textviews. My problem is that when one of the listviews (the one on the left side of the screen) updates, the other two update too, causing poor UI performance. I understand that RelativeLayout can be tricky in cases when the size of one view affects the positioning of the other (causing the other to redraw), so I have made sure that the positioning of the two listviews is not associated with the left listview's size.
