Remarks

You can position a drop-down window relative to a target element (PositionTarget) or a Rectangle object (PositionRectangle). Use the PositionMode property to specify a drop-down window’s relative position.

The position takes into account the offset specified by the HorizontalOffset and VerticalOffset property values.
