Gets or sets the placement to be used for this Flyout relative to the target object.
This value is overridden by the value of placement passed in the show method.
The placement of the Flyout relative to the target: the string literal "auto", "top", "bottom", "left", or "right". The default is "auto".
If the value is "auto", the flyout is placed such that the entire flyout can be shown without being resized.
If the value is "top", "bottom", "left", or "right", the flyout is shown on the side specified and, if necessary, resized to fit.
The placement specified doesn't mirror for right-to-left languages; left is always left and right is always right.
