Are you moving the item or simply copying it?

Here's a very simple example of copying the text into the TextBox.

Public Class Form1

  Private Sub ListBox1_MouseDown(sender As Object, e As MouseEventArgs) Handles ListBox1.MouseDown
    If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left AndAlso Me.ListBox1.SelectedItem IsNot Nothing Then
      Me.ListBox1.DoDragDrop(Me.ListBox1.SelectedItem.ToString(), DragDropEffects.Copy)
    End If
  End Sub

  Private Sub TextBox1_DragEnter(sender As Object, e As DragEventArgs) Handles TextBox1.DragEnter
    If e.Data.GetDataPresent(System.Windows.Forms.DataFormats.StringFormat) Then
      e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy
    End If
  End Sub

  Private Sub TextBox1_DragDrop(sender As Object, e As DragEventArgs) Handles TextBox1.DragDrop
    If e.Data.GetDataPresent(System.Windows.Forms.DataFormats.StringFormat) Then
      Me.TextBox1.Text = e.Data.GetData(System.Windows.Forms.DataFormats.StringFormat).ToString()
    End If
  End Sub
End Class

Open in new window


Removing the text from the source ListBox would require a bit more work, but not much.
