Description

When these buttons are listed vertically to provide a means of left-side navigation, the menu choices should be listed along the trailing edge (i.e. the right side in left-to-right cultures). The arrow should also point toward the trailing edge.

See also #4634 and #7511. I'm wondering if what we really want is a vertical MenuBar widget.

Having said that, it's simple to add a positioning option list to DropDownButton, like Tooltip (there's even a TODO in the code about it).

Upon review, the use of widgets with the button-style graphics and behavior is really not appropriate for left navigation panel choices. Hence, closing this ticket would be fine by me.

Ok. I think we basically have what you want now with the vertical MenuBars of #8316 anyway. Thanks.
