dynamic richtextbox in a panel not showing image

I am dynamically adding RichTextBoxes to a panel dynamically. In each RichTextBox I am embedding an image as follows



string iconName = "MyIconName.gif";
System.IO.Stream strm  = null;
strm = this.GetType().Assembly.GetManifestResourceStream(iconName);
System.Drawing.Image image  = Image.FromStream(strm);

RichTextBox r = new RitchTextBox();
Clipboard.SetDataObject(image);
DataFormats.Format myFormat = DataFormats.GetFormat (DataFormats.Bitmap);
r.Paste(myFormat);


The image does not show up but if I apply the same code to a RichTextBox that is not added dynamically to the panel, then it shows up fine.... What do I need to do in order to have the embedded image show up?

RichTextBox r = new RitchTextBox();

This is not enough to create control. You need to add it to Controls collection of parent control and then show it. Maybe after this r.Paste will work.
