In our framework, we solve this with a VI that contains purely the hamburger items on its Front Panel. It is launched by the main GUI when the Hamburger Menu icon is selected, and positioned directly over the hamburger menu icon. If you select an item it closes itself and returns a message to the caller with information on what was clicked. If you click away from it, it closes without a message.

I can't share code because our framework uses actors, and without the supporting infrastructure of the whole architecture you'd not be able to use it anyway. BUt you don't need to use actors to solve this, just ordinary VIs. Ensure you set the HamburgerMenu.vi display properties to exclude the title, menu, scrollbars etc., and is set to Floating so that it doesn't fall behind the main GUI VI.
