Make CStatic member of your class derived from CRichEditCtrl. And use this member to display images by showing and hiding its window and resetting images

Perhaps I need to clarify my question as well.  The image needs to be inline with text already displayed in the Rich Edit control.

The easy way is to do it through the clipboard.
The steps are as follows:
1)Override CopyToClipBoard (member of COleServerItem)
    a) ::OpenCipboard(0);
    b) :: SetClipBoardData(CF_BITMAP(many options- see help,handle);
    c) ::CloseClipBoard( );
2) Move cursor to place to be inserted programmatically or manually
3) Paste It!
    a)  CRichEditCtrl& pCntrl=GetRichEditCtrl( );
    b)  pCtrl.Paste( );

Thats It!  If you need more help - give me your class data & I'll give you the
specific code.

Sorry about the delay.  The only problem with this
method is that it destroys the clipboard contents.  How do I avoid this from happening?

This the generally accepted method of performing this function.  Simply save the clipboard contents first , make your transfer, then retore it.  Let me know if you need more details.. kburns
