Extra features:

  1. Possibility to give an Element Id and CSS Class to be applyed when there's no results.
    • Useful to show some visual style when the search returns no results
  2. Minimum Search Characters to start searching
    • Useful to avoid too many results to show (e.g. just search after the 3rd character is typed)
  3. Possible to Enable or Disable the Double Click feature to open all the results
    • Disable the default feature to Double Click to show all the records

To change the Text "Type or Double Click for list" you just need to change the Prompt Text of Input widget associated with BetterAutoComplete.
