Here is a sample:

  Dim conn As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("sp_getlist", conn)
  cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
  cmd.Parameters.Add("ID", SqlDbType.Int).Value = id
  conn.Open()
  Dim reader As SqlDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)
