Yes you explained it quite well the first time. Despite your rather rough  
English you manage to get your message across ;)

Why do you expect the dialogue to disappear on its own just because you  
set it's position to 100% ? This may be what is required in a general  
context and it would be wrong for it to disappear automatically.

In general if you created an object (widget) and you no longer need it you  
should destroy it rather than hiding it. Otherwise you will probably end  
up with several hidden objects hanging around in memory until the plugin  

If you want to reuse it you could keep it hidden and then bring it back  
but you'd have to check if you have one already.

Since it's a pretty small object it does not really matter but closing it  
would be tidier unless there is a lot of initialisation going that you  
dont want to repeat.
