1. It depends on what you want to do. Close() hides the Window, but does not remove it from the DOM, so it can be shown again easily. Destroy() removes the Window from the DOM, and the assumption is that you don't need the Window object anymore.
2. The Window will stretch automatically if scrolling is disabled and there is no explicit height set.
