App Bridge - ResourcePicker - InitialQuery not hidden on subsequent requests

When using the ResourcePicker component from AppBridge the initial query is hidden when a resource picker is displayed the first time. This is the expected results.


On subsequent open actions however, the initial query is visible. This seems incorrect.


The behavior on subsequent open actions is not a desirable outcome for two reasons: 

- the outcome is not consistent when comparing first and subsequent opens

- the initial query should not be visible on subsequent opens. It should be hidden to avoid that users can override the filter


How can we avoid this behavior and ensure the initial query is always hidden?


Here's an (incomplete) code snippet that shows how we create a picker in plain Javascript:


... create app and create variable ResourcePicker

let picker = ResourcePicker.create(app, { resourceType: ResourcePicker.ResourceType.Collection, options: { initialQuery: '... query ...', selectMultiple: true, showHidden: false } });
picker.subscribe(ResourcePicker.Action.SELECT, function (selection) { ... }); picker.dispatch(ResourcePicker.Action.OPEN);
