Is it possible to remove any one of the maximize or minimize button(not just disabling) ?

I want to have only a close button and minimize button in my widget.
So far what I hv achieved is only disabling the maximize button. Can I hide/remove that completely?
The minimize and maximize button are comming as a pair always. Is there any way to get only one of them like close button?

Thanks and regards,
