Search Menu Template & Menu Item State

I’m converting on of my programs from studio to ASOC. Everything is going fine but I do have one problem regarding the state of menu items in the search field menu. I’ve done everything outlined here in one of my previous threads:

Everything works except when after I press enter in the search field, the state of all the menu items reverts back to whatever is set in interface builder, but the contents of the hidden text field remain unchanged. Other wise everything is working fine.

Thanks for any help.
