I have an app with a digital clock in the corner of the page in the format HH:mm:ss
This this done with a label that has its text property updated every second.
It all works fine but, using the Android GPU profiler and 'show view update' settings, I can see that the whole page is being redrawn every second!
Playing around further the whole page even gets redrawn with a seemingly harmless colour change!!
I have tried taking the Label out into a AbsoluteLayout in the hopes that the measure/layout phase didn't spill out into all the other parent views - but it does
Does anyone know of a nice way to stop this?
The only alternative I have found is drawing the text in a SKCanvas and having it update that way - only the canvas is redrawn in this instance.
