The problem is that you used patterns (e.g., x_) in the function in the DensityPlot.  You should also restrict the definition of f to numeric arguments since the RHS cannot evaluate without numeric input.

f[x_?NumericQ, y_?NumericQ] :=
 NIntegrate[r0*Exp[-(r0 + 2*
        (x^2 + y^2 + r0^2 + 2*r0*
            ((x^2 + y^2)^0.5)*
            (Cos[theta0]*(y/(x^2 + y^2)^0.5) -
              Sin[theta0]*(x/(x^2 + y^2)^0.5))
  {r0, 0, Infinity}, {theta0, 0, Pi}]

DensityPlot[f[x, y], {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}]

i entered the code above but mathematica return the error message:

NIntegrate::inumr: The integrand E^(-r0-2 (r0^2+<<1>>+<<1>>+2 r0
Power[<<2>>] Plus[<<2>>])^0.5) r0 has evaluated to non-numerical
values for all sampling points in the region with boundaries {{\
[Infinity],0.},{0,3.14159}}. >>

General::stop: Further output of NIntegrate::inumr will be suppressed
during this calculation.

what's wrong with my code? please help me! thanks a lot!
