   Inherits Form
   Private toolStripContainer1 As ToolStripContainer
   Private toolStrip1 As ToolStrip
   Private richTextBox1 As RichTextBox

   Public Sub New()
   End Sub

   <STAThread()>  _
   Shared Sub Main()
      Application.Run(New Form1())
   End Sub

   Private Sub DragToolStrip()
      ' Create a ToolStripContainer.
      toolStripContainer1 = New System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripContainer()
      toolStripContainer1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Fill

      ' Create a ToolStrip and add items to it.
      toolStrip1 = New System.Windows.Forms.ToolStrip()

      ' Add the ToolStrip to the top panel of the ToolStripContainer.

      ' Create a RichTextBox and add it to the ContentPanel.
      richTextBox1 = New System.Windows.Forms.RichTextBox()
      richTextBox1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(94, 61)

      ' Attach event handlers for the BeginDrag and EndDrag events.
      AddHandler toolStrip1.BeginDrag, AddressOf toolStrip1_BeginDrag
      AddHandler toolStrip1.EndDrag, AddressOf toolStrip1_EndDrag
   End Sub

   ' Clear any text from the RichTextBox when a drag operation begins.
   Private Sub toolStrip1_BeginDrag(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
      richTextBox1.Text = ""
   End Sub

   ' Notify the user when the drag operation ends.
   Private Sub toolStrip1_EndDrag(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
      richTextBox1.Text = "The drag operation is complete."
   End Sub
End Class
