"selection" if the command is in the selection section; otherwise "global".
The "commands" value is the default setting for the layout property. This layout includes two sections: "global" and "selection".
"global" maps to right and "selection" maps to left in LTR (left-to-right) layouts. The opposite is true in RTL (right-to-left) layouts.
"global" is intended for commands that should be displayed at all times.
"selection" is intended for context commands for selected objects.
"global" is for primary commands that are always visible in the app bar.
"selection" is for non-primary (or secondary) commands. These are text-based menu items that appear when a primary command is invoked.
Note You can put any HTML in the app bar if you set the layout to "custom". However, an app bar with a "custom" layout doesn’t have the full functionality available to an app bar using the "commands" layout.
