use an optional element ID that the widget should be attached to.
Otherwise it will be attached to the body.
attach() method is required for the widget to be actually
shown, the following functions are usually not needed. They allow for
fine-tuning the experience.
close() - Close/minimize the widget to only show the icon.
open() - Open the widget when it is minimized.
toggle() - Switch between open and closed state.
