RTF content in Context Menu

I have a requirement- need to display RTF content in context menu. I
am able to host a rich textbox in a contextmenu strip using
ToolStripControlHost class. But assigning some RTF content to the
containing rich textbox control does not display in actual RTF
format- it just dislpays as plain text. Here's the code am using:
//Custom richtextbox to handle bg color in readonly mode
public class MyRichTextBox : RichTextBox
public MyRichTextBox()

public new bool ReadOnly
return base.ReadOnly;
if (value == true)
this.BackColor = Color.White;

base.ReadOnly = value;


public Form1()

m_cmenu.Items.Add(new ToolStripMenuItem("Edit"));
m_cmenu.Items.Add(new ToolStripSeparator());

MyRichTextBox m_richTextBox = new MyRichTextBox();
m_richTextBox.BorderStyle =
m_richTextBox.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Fill;
m_richTextBox.ReadOnly = true;
m_richTextBox.ScrollBars =

ToolHost textItem = new ToolHost(m_richTextBox);
//Assign sample RTF content.
m_richTextBox.Rtf = @"{\rtf1\fbidis\ansi
\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033{\fonttbl{\f0\fswiss \fprq2\fcharset0
Arial;}{\f1\fnil\fcharset0 Microsoft Sans Serif;}}

this.ContextMenuStrip = m_cmenu;//Assign contextmenu for
