I'm talking about sliding panels around the edges of the desktop, without having to first make a window that covers the whole desktop, or without having to pre-allocate a window that is as big as the panel will ever be, and leave it there all the time.  Even if you make it look transparent, it still handles events unless you do something to make it transparent to events too.  But you don't want it to be transparent to all events, because you need a way to open the panel...

Yes, it's true that you are confined to the window. But for a panel I
assume this will come in from one of the four sides. You can set the
window size to the small container when hidden and resize it to the full
size when sliding in.
