Is it possible to use ofxGui without ofxGuiPanel / ofxGuiGroup?

What I want to achieve is to have single non collapsable ui elements at fixed positions of the screen…
Or is it possible to make ofxGuiPanel / ofxGuiGroup non collapsable and / or its header invisible?

Asked to fast, I guess here is a good answer: ofxGui / ofxPanel: disableHeader() and .getGroup("g").minimize() are looking bad · Issue #6470 · openframeworks/openFrameworks · GitHub

I still would like to know, if it is possible to make the gui elements non collapsable while ofxGuiPanel is visible…

you can instance any ofxGui element, say sliders buttons etc, but you need to manage them by yourself, which simply means placing it somewhere on screen, calling draw on it and enabling the mouse for each of these by calling registerMouseEvents() on each.
