Examples

The following example creates a SqlParameter and sets some of its properties.

private static void AddSqlParameter(SqlCommand command)
{
    SqlParameter parameter = new SqlParameter();
    parameter.ParameterName = "@Description";
    parameter.IsNullable = true;
    parameter.DbType = DbType.String;
    parameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;

    command.Parameters.Add(parameter);
}
Private Sub AddSqlParameter(ByVal command As SqlCommand)

    Dim parameter As New SqlParameter()
    With parameter
        .ParameterName = "@Description"
        .IsNullable = True
        .DbType = DbType.String
        .Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
    End With

    command.Parameters.Add(parameter)
End Sub

Remarks

The ParameterName is specified in the form @paramname. You must set ParameterName before executing a SqlCommand that relies on parameters.
