how to use SQL Server Stored Procedure in C#, VB6

Using Stored Procedure to insert data is sometimes proved worthy in case of robust applications. More appropriately, it is at least better than creating a long SQL insert query string for database interaction. However, using Stored Procedure in C# is very simple and effective as explained below.

@guest_Name varchar50),
@guest_Address varchar(50),
@guest_PhoneNumber varchar(50),
@guest_VisitPurpose varchar(50),
@guest_Id int output
  insert into
  @guest_VisitPurpose, getdate ())
  set @guest_Id = SCOPE_IDENTITY ()

First of all, I have written Stored Procedure udp_InsertGuest to insert data in t_Guest table that returns identity of last inserted row as well.

sqlConnection = DbConnector.GetConnection;
sqlCommand = new SqlCommand(“udp_InsertGuest”,sqlConnection);
sqlCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

Here, I have created sqlCommand object of SqlCommand class using Stored Procedure and Database Connection as parameters as well as assigned Command Type to it.

sqlCommand.Parameters.Add(“@guest_Name”, SqlDbType.VarChar, 50);
sqlCommand.Parameters[“@guest_Name”].Value = guestObj.Name;

sqlCommand.Parameters.Add(“@guest_Address”, SqlDbType.VarChar, 50);
sqlCommand.Parameters[“@guest_Address”].Value = guestObj.Address;

sqlCommand.Parameters.Add(“@guest_PhoneNumber”, SqlDbType.VarChar, 50);
sqlCommand.Parameters[“@guest_PhoneNumber”].Value = guestObj.Phone;

sqlCommand.Parameters.Add(“@guest_VisitPurpose”, SqlDbType.VarChar, 50);
sqlCommand.Parameters[“@guest_VisitPurpose”].Value = guestObj.VisitCause;

sqlCommand.Parameters.Add(“@guest_Id”, SqlDbType.Int);
sqlCommand.Parameters[“@guest_Id”].Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;

This code snippet shows how to add parameters and assign values in sqlCommand object. Please follow the output parameter requires a direction assignment.

int guestId = (int)sqlCommand.Parameters[“@guest_Id”].Value;

Finally, after sqlCommand’s execution, it’s quite easy to retrieve the value of output parameter.

Dim guestId As Integer

'Creating Command
Dim command As ADODB.command
Set command = New ADODB.command
command.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
command.ActiveConnection = ProjectConnection
command.CommandText = "udp_InsertGuest"

'Adding Input Parameters
command.Parameters.Append command.CreateParameter("guest_Name", adVarChar, adParamInput, 50, guestName)
command.Parameters.Append command.CreateParameter("guest_Address", adVarChar, adParamInput, 50, guestAddress)
command.Parameters.Append command.CreateParameter("guest_PhoneNumber", adVarChar, adParamInput, 50, guestPhoneNumber)
command.Parameters.Append command.CreateParameter("guest_VisitPurpose", adVarChar, adParamInput, 50, guestVisitPurpose)

'Adding Output Parameters
command.Parameters.Append command.CreateParameter("guest_id", adInteger, adParamOutput)

'Executing Command

'Retrieving Output Parameters
guestId = command("guest_Id")

This code snippet shows how to use stored procedure with VB6.
