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?

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.
