Some questions from VB newbie

1. How to make the TEXTBOX can only receive number?
   so, it will reject any alphabets.
2. I make the gradation color of my form from blue to
   black. The question is how to make the LABEL be
   transparent? So it will use the color of the form

Thank you for the attention.
Need the answer...

1)  Double click on the textbox, then in the text1_change procedure insert the following code:

Text1_Change()

     If Not IsNumeric(Text1.Text) then
          Text1.Text = ""
     End If

End Sub


2)  Set the BackStyle property of the label to Transparent in the properties window.

Question 1:

You have 2 choices: validate the keypress event of the TextBox or use a MaskEdit Control.

Here is the code for the KeyPress event:
Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    If KeyAscii < Asc("0") Or KeyAscii > Asc("9") Then
        KeyAscii = 0
    End If
End Sub

Question 2:
Change the Backstyle property of your label to Transparent.

Making a text box only accept numbers is not as easy as it might initially seem....

batdan's solution is OK but it fixes things after the fact: first the user types in rubbish, then you tell the user "you can't do that!"

Ideally you want to stop the user from typing in rubbish in the first place.

emoreau's solution is better in that it does this. But it isn't great either because now you can't paste into the text box anymore.

I'll dig up some code for handling this - just bear with me a moment....

OK - look at this question:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/bin/Q.10113932

This is a Previously Answered Question about "how to round euro" which has nothing to do with your question, but it is Free (no points) and it contains some example code.

In the example code there is a form with "numeric only" text boxes on it which has all the code you need.

Good luck!
