How to reload SideView TextField

I've created a view using sideview 2 dynamic sideview pulldowns and a textfield. The user chooses values from the pulldowns, then enters a value of his choosing in the textfield, then chooses a timeerange from the timepicker, then the submit button. This works fine for a single search, but if the user changes only the textfield and searches again, the search produces the same results. It seems the only way for the textfield to push updated values to the downstream searches, the user must refresh the page by changing one of the pulldowns. Is there a way to have the page autorefresh data from the textfield without having to re-choose the pulldowns?

This is a good question. I'm quite familiar with this and as of long-ago improvements to the TextField module, the problem became much harder to hit, but it's still there in certain specific cases.

To make a long story short, I'll bet that your Search module that ties all of this together, is upstream from the Button module. Change that so that the Search module is downstream from the Button, and the bug will go away. The change will have no other practical effect on the view. It's possible if you have an extremely complex view (i do not say this lightly), that you can hit the bug in other ways, but I think this simple change will fix your problem. Let me know how it works.
