Widgets on customize.php page should refresh after data was sent

On widgets.php page, widgets are refreshed after you press Save button, but in customize.php page widgets - do not refresh.

Is this by design ?, because I think widgets should work the same way the do on widgets.php page.

I noticed that widgets DO refresh but not every time, only when the number of inputs are greater then the original state, so it does not work It should be.

So my ticked is to make widgets refresh every time on customize.php page like they do on widgets.php page.

@alexvorn2 do you mean whether or not there is an "Apply" button? This is indeed by design that the widgets in the customizer not get fully refreshed. The presence of the Apply button indicates that the the JS logic wasn't able to sync the values from the server update to the form in the UI.
