Contextual menu

A contextual menu can be applied to any button, link or navigation item that requires a secondary menu. To interact with the menu it will require some javascript to hide/show each pattern. This achieved by finding the toggle element p-contextual-menu__toggle and what it controls aria-controls. The target element will be hidden or shown with aria-hidden="true" or false. The control element will also change aria-expanded so and screen readers will know it's active.

Using direction modifiers will change the placement of the drop-down menu. By default alignment is to the right of the parent pattern.
