Examples

The following example demonstrates creating SqlParameter objects to supply an input parameter to a stored procedure that returns results in an output parameter. The code iterates through the items in the SqlParameterCollection and displays some parameter properties in the console window. This example assumes a valid connection string to the AdventureWorks sample database on an instance of SQL Server.

static private string CreateSqlParameters(int documentID)
{
    // Assumes GetConnectionString returns a valid connection string to the
    // AdventureWorks sample database on an instance of SQL Server 2005.
    using (SqlConnection connection =
               new SqlConnection(GetConnectionString()))
    {
        connection.Open();
        SqlCommand command = connection.CreateCommand();
        try
        {
            // Setup the command to execute the stored procedure.
            command.CommandText = "GetDocumentSummary";
            command.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

            // Create the input parameter for the DocumentID.
            SqlParameter paramID =
                new SqlParameter("@DocumentID", SqlDbType.Int);
            paramID.Value = documentID;
            command.Parameters.Add(paramID);

            // Create the output parameter to retrieve the summary.
            SqlParameter paramSummary =
                new SqlParameter("@DocumentSummary", SqlDbType.NVarChar, -1);
            paramSummary.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;
            command.Parameters.Add(paramSummary);

            // List the parameters and some of properties.
            SqlParameterCollection paramCollection = command.Parameters;
            string parameterList = "";
            for (int i = 0; i < paramCollection.Count; i++)
            {
                parameterList += String.Format("  {0}, {1}, {2}\n",
                    paramCollection[i], paramCollection[i].DbType,
                    paramCollection[i].Direction);
            }
            Console.WriteLine("Parameter Collection:\n" + parameterList);

            // Execute the stored procedure; retrieve
            // and display the output parameter value.
            command.ExecuteNonQuery();
            Console.WriteLine((String)(paramSummary.Value));
            return (String)(paramSummary.Value);
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
            return null;
        }
    }
}
