Click the text box, so that it has green handles. Right click to get the context menu. Choose item Area. Goto tab Transparency, the filling itsellf is in tab Area.

I thought you are using the T-shape, I missed your text "linked". So you are using a form control? A form control has no way to set it transparent, you can only set a solid color. I'm sorry.
