creating transparent gradients? - Adobe Indesign Windows

I am trying to create a gradient fill for a box that has color on one end and transparent on the other. Its almost seeming like InDesign doesnt do this, and that it has to have a color. when i select the No Color icon as a color, it doesnt register it to the gradient. am i missing something?...

    That's because it doesn't. You could try setting the blend mode to
    multiply but you'd be far better off just creating the gradient in
    Photoshop and saving as PSD.

    You could use Illustrator, too, but I prefer raster gradients.

    I'm not sure I have the same question, but I'd like to make gradient tranpsparance of a placed picture together with other placed things in ID. F.e. I'd like a picture frame fade over a text frame. I don't understand this would be a problem for the programmers of ID. Still it would be very convenient.
