ToolboxBitmap doesn't work for me

I am trying to set the toolbox icon for a web control, but can't seem to get it to work.  I have already referenced this link:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vbcon/html/vbtskProvidingToolboxBitmapForYourControl.asp

My declaration is as follows:
=================
Imports System
Imports System.Collections.Generic
Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports System.Text
Imports System.Web
Imports System.Web.UI
Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls
Imports System.Web.UI.Design
Imports System.Drawing

<ToolboxData("<{0}:EIB runat=server></{0}:EIB>")> <ToolboxBitmap("C:\EIB.bmp")> Public Class EIB
    Inherits System.Web.UI.WebControls.ImageButton
===================

EIB.bmp is a 16x16 by 16 color bitmap.  What am I doing wrong?  Can somebody advise me?

Regards,
A.Wooley

Create a .bmp file in the application that has the same name as the class--EIB.bmp.  Then change the 'Build Action' for the .bmp file to 'Embedded Resource'.

Bob,
Thanks, but it didn't work. Any other ideas? Do I have the declaration correct?

<ToolboxData("<{0}:EIB runat=server></{0}:EIB>")> <ToolboxBitmap(GetType(EIB), "EIB.bmp")> Public Class EIB
    Inherits System.Web.UI.WebControls.ImageButton
