Hello, Cheng sam,

There seem to be a couple of problems in your code.  (Maybe it hasn't been copied correctly in your post.  Otherwise I don't know how you could get it to compile.)
1. There is an extraneous End Sub in your Student class.
2. Your Button2 Click event handler refers to a non-existent variable "emp1" at the point of your error.

I assume that neither of these faults appear in your actual code.  

I think that your actual problem is that your class subStudent is not marked as serializable.  Just add:

<Serializable()> _

in front of the line "Public Class subStudent" and I think you'll be able to move on to the next problem.  (That will be that you haven't yet assigned the variable "stu".)

Cheers,
Randy

I agree with omegaomega...marking subStudent as serializable fixes the main problem.

Here I have done some MINOR refactoring of your code:
Public Class Form1
 

    <Serializable()> _

    Public Class Student

        Public FirstName As String

        Public mysubstudent As New subStudent

    End Class
 

    <Serializable()> _

    Public Class subStudent

        Public width As Integer

        Public height As Integer

        Public left As Integer

        Public right As Integer

        Public objectname As String

    End Class
 

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        Dim emp As New Student

        emp.FirstName = TextBox1.Text

        emp.mysubstudent.width = Button3.Width

        emp.mysubstudent.height = Button3.Height

        emp.mysubstudent.objectname = "Button"

        Clipboard.SetDataObject(New DataObject("Student1", emp))

    End Sub
 

    Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click

        If Clipboard.ContainsData("Student1") Then

            Dim emp As Student = DirectCast(Clipboard.GetData("Student1"), Student)

            T3.Text = emp.FirstName

            If emp.mysubstudent.objectname = "Button" Then

                Dim mybut As New Button

                mybut.Width = emp.mysubstudent.width

                mybut.Height = emp.mysubstudent.height

                mybut.Text = "myb"

                mybut.Left = 100

                mybut.Top = 200

                Me.Controls.Add(mybut)

            End If

        End If

    End Sub
 

End Class
