    // do something

  // fired before the jsPanel is minimized
  onbeforeminimize: function (panel) {
    // do something

  // fired before the jsPanel is restored
  onbeforenormalize: function (panel) {
    // do something

  // fired before the jsPanel is smallified/unsmallified
  onbeforesmallify: function (panel) {
    // do something
  onbeforeunsmallify: function (panel) {
    // do something

  // fired before the jsPanel is resized
  onbeforeresize: function (panel) {
    // do something

  // fired after the jsPanel is closed
  onclosed: function (panel) {
    // do something

  onsmallified: function (panel) {
    // do something
  onunsmallified: function (panel) {
    // do something

  onwindowresize: false


5. API strategies.

// close the panel

// close all child panels

// reload content

// resize content

// enable/disable dragit interaction

// bring the panel to the front

// show/hide header controls
instance.headerControl(control [, action]);

// set/get header title

// maximize the panel

// minimize the panel

// restore the panel

// re-position the panel
instance.reposition(position, callback);  

// resize the panel
instance.resize(width, height [, callback]);

// enable/disable resizeit interaction

// change the theme
