Increment & return current generator value

How can I return the current generator id value using sql.  I want to be able to run a sql query in my code to increment and return the current value.

I would like something like to work, but of course it doesn't:

select GEN_ID (ORDER_ID_GEN, 1) AS ORDER_ID;

I don't want to increment the value based on an insert into a table.

Thanks in advance.

Try this:

CREATE PROCEDURE ND (
  MYINC INTEGER
) RETURNS (
  AVALUE INTEGER
) AS  
begin
avalue = gen_id(NUM_DS,:MYINC);
SUSPEND;
end

and this:

SELECT * FROM ND(1)

Thank you Ivan.  Here is my working version:

/* Procedure: "GET_ORDER_ID" */
/* Usage: SELECT * FROM GET_ORDER_ID(1) */

SET TERM !! ;
CREATE PROCEDURE GET_ORDER_ID ( MYINC INTEGER ) RETURNS ( ORDER_ID INTEGER )
AS
begin
  order_id = gen_id(ORDER_ID_GEN,:myinc);
  SUSPEND;
END !!
SET TERM ; !!
