Show throbber as an option

                 Key: TOMAHAWK-1125
             Project: MyFaces Tomahawk
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: InputSuggestAjax
    Affects Versions: 1.1.7-SNAPSHOT
            Reporter: Apostolos Mantes

There is no way for the user to know if the suggest function has returned an empty list or
is still working. The old inputsuggestajax UI made the difference clear to the users via the
throbber icon. If the user thinks that there are no suggestions and in the mean time moves
the focus to a differenc component (by clicking or pressing the tab button) the list will
popup but he cannot use the arrows to navigate to the results.

Having an option to display the throbber icon would be useful in cases where a "heavy" suggest
function is implemented or there is a slow network connection. More generally, a more "generic"
approach would allow the user to define a class style to apply to the control while the ajax
function has not returned. Maybe there is a way to override the called dojo function but my
dojo skills are not sufficient to achieve it.
