Are you creating a webform or a webapplication.  If you are creating a web application use the numbervalidator control, if you are creating a winform you can check this on the KeyPress event. Look at the code below
protected void TextBox1_KeyPress(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
{
    int numIsInt = 0; 
    e.Handled = !int.TryParse(e.KeyChar.ToString(), out numIsInt);
}

You could use the NumericUpDown control. Also have a look at http://www.emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2003/03/Creating-your-own-Windows-Custom-Control.aspx

Try this:

private void textBox1_KeyPress(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
        {
            if ((e.KeyChar > 47 && e.KeyChar < 58) || (e.KeyChar == 8))
            {
                e.Handled = false;
            }

            else
            {
                e.Handled = true;
            }
        }
