2. Disable all input on ListView

I have a layout that looks like this


When i press the image view i toggle the visibility of the last
LinearLayout holding the AutoCompleteTextViews.

makes the component selection behave strange.

I can solve some of the issues by setting setFocusable(false) and
setting the setOnItemClickListener(null) on the listView. But the user
can still scroll the "background panel" which is the list view. Please
help me out
