Description

Hello,

While testing a patch for customizer I used the search function on the Menu editor. This works and I can add items form it. But I can't leave the menu search and return to the previous view. It persists after you click the X, which just clears the input, and stays there even if you go out of the menu to another menu... I have to reload to return to the normal view.

It would be nice to latch into the X on the search input so when you clear your search it switches views. If users want to search again the input it still present. Maybe along with tieing into the X also just revert views when the input is emptied and only switch to search results when text has been input.

Thanks

Oo... hmm the loop in my GIF makes it look like you do return to the default view... thats just the gif looping back to the start.

The function of that little "x" seems to simply be to clear the search field, not to close the whole search pane.

Replying to tobifjellner:

Thanks @tobifjellner that's what I found as well, it simply dismisses the text but really should revert the view as there's no way currently to get back to the previous view without a reload.
