Please clarify two things...

(1) What version of VB.Net?
(2) Are you using MenuItem or ToolStripMenuItem?

private void ToolStripMenuItem_ClickToMoveOnTop( object sender, EventArgs e )
{
ToolStripMenuItem item = sender as ToolStripMenuItem;
           
ToolStripMenuItemNAME.DropDownItems.RemoveAt(acToolStripMenuItem.DropDownItems.IndexOf(item));

ToolStripMenuItemNAME.DropDownItems.Insert(0, item);

}

try to imitate this in VB.Net

 - use ToolStripMenuItem_ClickToMoveOnTop as the delegate for the eventhandler
 - use in all ToolStripMenuItem subitems

Following is the code which will do as per your requirement, you need to replace the menu item & dropdown item names with yours.
Just to simplify , am putting up my scenario for the following code
Main menu is FileToolStripMenuItem
Dropdown menus are NewToolStripMenuItem, OpenToolStripMenuItem, SaveToolStripMenuItem

You can add more dropdown menus after the handle keyword as shown in the code.
Private Sub NewToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles NewToolStripMenuItem.Click, OpenToolStripMenuItem.Click, SaveToolStripMenuItem.Click

        Dim ts As ToolStripMenuItem

        ts = CType(sender, ToolStripMenuItem)

        FileToolStripMenuItem.DropDownItems.RemoveAt(FileToolStripMenuItem.DropDownItems.IndexOf(ts))

        FileToolStripMenuItem.DropDownItems.Insert(0, ts)
 

    End Sub

Open in new window
