#36050 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Customizer: gap above widget section when focusing from preview shift+click

Reported by: mattwiebe's profile mattwiebe Owned by: westonruter's profile westonruter
Milestone: 4.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.4
Component: Customize Keywords: has-patch has-screenshots
Focuses: ui Cc:


When focusing on a widget via shift+click in the preview iframe, the widget area panel will render with an incorrect margin-top, producing a large, ugly space.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open the Customizer
  2. Shift + click on any widget area
  3. See a large gap above the widget's widget area section

Note that this stops happening every time after you've been navigating through other sections/panels in the Customizer. Focusing on a widget first produces reliable results. Screenshot and patch incoming.

All the diff does is move section._recalculateTopMargin() into a setTimeout call with a 0ms timeout to bump it to the top of the call stack, since it's otherwise making calculations based on not quite current layout.

I've been noticing this increasingly as well. It seems to be specifically when focusing on a section (or a control within a section) that is within a panel. It also seems to only happen when the contained panel was previously collapsed. If you collapse the section and re-expand it, subsequent focuses on other sections within that panel seem to not have the glitch.

Customize: Remove gap above section contained in panel when initially focusing on control.

Props mattwiebe.
