VB 6.0 did not support drag-and-drop of controls on a form from one container to another. To move controls already on a form to a group box on the form required a cut/paste operation. If this same procedure is used in VB.NET, any events for the cut controls will lose their Handles statements.

So in VB.NET, use drag-and-drop to move controls from one container to another. This will preserve the Handles statements and save you time and confusion.
