If you require justifying the Expander button to the right, you need to set the FlowDirection property to RightToLeft.

Note: If you set the FlowDirection to RightToLeft, the content of the expander will also be moved to RightToLeft justification. In order to avoid this, you can set the flow direction to expander content. This can be done with the following code snippets,

[XAML]

<Expander FlowDirection="RightToLeft">
            <Expander.Header>
                <TextBlock Text="Expander header content" Background="AliceBlue"
                           Width="{Binding
                           RelativeSource={RelativeSource
                           Mode=FindAncestor,
                           AncestorType={x:Type Expander}},
                           Path=ActualWidth}"/>
            </Expander.Header>
            <Grid FlowDirection="LeftToRight">
                <TextBlock Background="Gray" Text="Expander body content"/>
            </Grid>
</Expander>

This example shows how to create an Expander control that contains complex content such as an image and text. The example also encloses the content of the Expander in a ’ScrollViewer’ control.

[XAML]

<Expander Width='200' HorizontalContentAlignment='Stretch'>
   <Expander.Header>
     <BulletDecorator>
       <BulletDecorator.Bullet>
         <Image Width='10' Source='images\icon.jpg'/>
       </BulletDecorator.Bullet>
       <TextBlock Margin='20,0,0,0'>My Expander</TextBlock>
     </BulletDecorator>
   </Expander.Header>
   <Expander.Content>
     <ScrollViewer Height='50'>
       <TextBlock TextWrapping='Wrap'>

       </TextBlock>
     </ScrollViewer>
   </Expander.Content>
 </Expander>
