Class Library Toolbox Icon

I cannot seem to figure out how to add an icon to my class library so when a user adds it to their tool box there is a custom icon versus the purple gear.  Please see the attached project (VS 2010) and see what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks!

I finally wrapped my head around this.  Here's the code:

Namespace CustomGrid
    <ToolboxBitmap(GetType(MyGridControl))> _
    Public Class MyGridControl
        Inherits GridControl
        Protected Overrides Function CreateDefaultView() As BaseView
            Return CreateView("MyGridView")
        End Function
        Protected Overrides Sub RegisterAvailableViewsCore(ByVal collection As InfoCollection)
            MyBase.RegisterAvailableViewsCore(collection)
            collection.Add(New MyGridViewInfoRegistrator())
            collection.Add(New MyBandedGridViewInfoRegistrator())
        End Sub

    End Class
End Namespace

You can name bitmap as you want, using overloaded method of ToolboxBitmap attribute constructor:
<ToolboxBitmap(GetType(MyGridControl),"YourBitmapName.bmp")> _
