Built-in boundary detection or Property to set the expand direction of sub-menus

Implementation of one or both of these features:

- Screen boundary detection: The list of child items expands to the opposite direction when necessary to prevent screen boundaries from being crossed.

- ExpandDirection: Gets or sets the direction in which child items will open.

Boundary detection is great to keep items on screen, but without set or automatic direction menu items can be covered by the boundary detection.

Hello Gary,

To add a bit of context, it is more likely that we implement boundary detection so the menu does not go out of the viewport. Direction is going to be rather difficult to expose for configuration, considering that the menu is a databound component and there is an unlimited number of levels and sub-menus, which makes choosing a direction next to impossible considering how many screen sizes and layouts are possible.
