Popup initial position

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Posted 6 years ago by rex hui
Version: 17.2.0665
Platform: .NET 4.7
Environment: Windows 10 (64-bit)

According to the documentation of PlacementMode from Microsoft:


The default value Bottom should have the left edge of the popup align with the left edge of the PlacementTarget, but it is not the case with the Actipro.

Is there a way to align it as below?

Microsoft has a "handedness" setting on tablet computers that can trigger this behavior.  Because for PCs with the "right-handed" setting, menus will open to the left to avoid blocking the hand.  

This article describes this Windows feature in general.

We've never liked that setting and it's one of the first things we change when getting a new tablet PC.

I also found this StackOverflow answer that should allow you to force a setting for your application to avoid this.

Thank you very much! The StackOverflow answer works.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
