Load bitmap on Pocket PC

I'm writing a Pocket PC application using Visual Studio 2005

I can add a bitmap to the project, but I don't know how to use code to access that bitmap

for example, I want that when I click the "button1", the "pictureBox1" will display the "Bitmap1.bmp" that was already in the project's resource

How I'm gonna do that?

m_image = MyResources.Icons.LoadBitmap("resTest");
m_image = MyResources.Icons.LoadBitmap("resTest"); works for sure but i want to add one more thing if the bitmap is embedded...

there is a small tricky thing to know...

if you put it in your work space in a folder like images then you have to write like this:
m_image = MyResources.Icons.LoadBitmap("images\\resTest");
