Autocomplete: Does not display when searching for the same string with a delay

Reported by: garygreen Owned by:

Blocked by: Blocking:

It's due to the if statement in the following lines of code:

_searchTimeout: function( event ) {
		clearTimeout( this.searching );
		this.searching = this._delay(function() {
			// only search if the value has changed

			if ( this.term !== this._value() ) {
				this.selectedItem = null; null, event );
		}, this.options.delay );

This means that it won't re-display the options if the input is reentered. Try the below fiddle by typing "london" and waiting for the display, click away, re-enter "london" and it won't display.

Here's the same test case with the CSS added: This could be especially problematic if there are other potential matches (for example "london2", "london bridge", etc).

I don't ''think'' we have to run the search again here, we could probably just add an else that displays the menu, since it should be in the same state as before.
