I use the following code to move a panel with an image onto a table layout panel.
I want to update the code so that the original panel also stays in the original position

   Dim ptOriginal As Point = Point.Empty

    Private Sub BarChart_MouseDown(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles BarChart.MouseDown
            ptOriginal = New Point(e.X, e.Y)
            Me.TableLayoutPanel1.AllowDrop = True
            DirectCast(sender, Control).DoDragDrop(sender, DragDropEffects.All)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("There was an error dragging " & ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub


    Private Sub TableLayoutPanel1_DragEnter(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles TableLayoutPanel1.DragEnter
        If e.Data.GetDataPresent(GetType(System.Windows.Forms.Panel)) Then
            e.Effect = DragDropEffects.All
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub TableLayoutPanel1_DragOver(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles TableLayoutPanel1.DragOver
        DirectCast(e.Data.GetData(GetType(System.Windows.Forms.Panel)), Control).Location = Me.PointToClient(New Point(e.X - ptOriginal.X, e.Y - ptOriginal.Y))
        DirectCast(e.Data.GetData(GetType(System.Windows.Forms.Panel)), Control).BringToFront()
    End Sub

    Private Sub TableLayoutPanel1_DragDrop(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles TableLayoutPanel1.DragDrop
        DirectCast(e.Data.GetData(GetType(System.Windows.Forms.Panel)), Panel).BringToFront()
    End Sub

So do you want to copy when an object dragged and dropped?

Use DragDropEffects.Copy in place of DragDropEffects.All and try
