Public Class Form1
    Dim DGMousPosDN As System.Drawing.Point
    Dim DgvPosDN As System.Drawing.Point
    Private Sub DataGridView1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.MouseDown
        If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left Then
            DGMousPosDN = Control.MousePosition
            DgvPosDN = DataGridView1.Location
        End If
    End Sub
    Private Sub DataGridView1_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.MouseMove
        If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left Then
            Dim DeltaX As Integer = Control.MousePosition.X - DGMousPosDN.X
            Dim DeltaY As Integer = Control.MousePosition.Y - DGMousPosDN.Y
            Dim newLoc As New System.Drawing.Point(DgvPosDN.X + DeltaX, DgvPosDN.Y + DeltaY)
            DataGridView1.Location = newLoc
        End If
    End Sub
End Class
