Unfortunately, the textbox doesn't have a BackStyle property. Either set the backcolor property, or use a label.
If you need to edit the control (and it must have a transparent background,) try this workaround.
Use a label with a transparent background. AND have a single, hidden textboxon your form. (probably, make it borderless, with the backcolor the same as your form.) When the label is clicked, position the hidden textbox over the label, make its height and width equal to that of the label, copy the caption from the label to the textbox, then make the textbox visible, and setfocus to the textbox.
After the user has edited the textbox data, and tabbed on, in the textbox validation event, copy the text from the textbox.text to the label.caption, clear the textbox, and make it not visible again.
You can use a single textbos, and position/size it as needed for multiple label "entries," or, if you don't mind the overhead of having extra textboxes, you could just add a textbox for each label you need to 'edit' and have it hidden. This works best if you're using control arrays (of labels AND textboxes)
