// Component declaration
var panel = {

    // Component ID
    id: 'PANEL_ID',

    // Positioning
    // You can define specific display size and if the display size is not specified then the window tries to find a size for larger display
    html: 'THE CONTENT OF PANEL', // or can be raw HTMLElement

    offset: { x: 200, y: 100, width: 600, height: 400, minwidth: 200, minheight: 200, maxwidth: 1000, maxheight: 1000, dockminwidth: 200, dockminheight: 200, dockmaxwidth: 400, dockmaxheight: 400 }, // minwidth, maxwidth, maxheight, minheight, dockminheight, dockminwidth, dockmaxheight, dockmaxwidth are optional

    // Default settings
    actions: { move: true, close: true, hide: true, resize: true, autosave: false, resizeX: true, resizeY: true },
    // GOOD TO KNOW:
    // "undefined" close or "close:false" and "hide:true" doesn't destroy the instance of panel (it will be hidden only)

    // A window title
    title: 'Title for the panel',

    // Handlers (optional):
    destroy: function() {
        // @el {jQuery} a content of the window

        // @el {jQuery} a content of the window

        // this.meta {Object} a reference to window object
        // this.element {jQuery} a content element of the window
        // this.container {jQuery} a main content element of the window

        // this.width {Number} a width of window
        // this.height {Number} a height of the content of the window
