VB.net Drag andDrop from RichTextBox (Automatically grab all text)

I am using the following code to drag data from a RichTextBox. At the moment I have to click into the RichTextBox
and manually select the text. How do I alter the code so that all the text is automatically included in the drag without
having to manually select it

  Private Sub RichTextBox1_DragEnter(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles RichTextBox1.DragEnter
        If e.Data.GetDataPresent(DataFormats.StringFormat) Then
            ' Allow the drop.
            e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy
            ' Do not allow the drop.
            e.Effect = DragDropEffects.None
        End If

    End Sub

    Private Sub RichTextBox1_MouseDown(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles RichTextBox1.MouseDown
        If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left And RichTextBox1.SelectionLength > 0 Then
            RichTextBox1.DoDragDrop(RichTextBox1.SelectedText, DragDropEffects.Copy)
        End If
    End Sub

Instead of

     RichTextBox1.DoDragDrop(RichTextBox1.SelectedText, DragDropEffects.Copy)


     RichTextBox1.DoDragDrop(RichTextBox1.Text, DragDropEffects.Copy)
