assuming that x_pkg.getstatus function returns number datatype. if it returns anythig else then please modify the datatype of "result" variable accordingly. also change the size of other variables according to your need. I have assumed 100.

below is a pl/sql block

declare
document_id varchar2(100) := '1';
document_type varchar2(100) := 'xxx';
document_mode number := 2;
result number;
begin
  result := x_pkg.getstatus(document_id => document_id,
                                                        document_type => document_type,
                                                        document_mode => document_mode);
end;


if you don't wan to hard code the  values then create a procedure to do this task as given below

create or replace procedure exec_func(document_id varchar2, document_type varchar2, document_mode number) as
result number;
begin
  result := x_pkg.getstatus(document_id => document_id,
                                                        document_type => document_type,
                                                        document_mode => document_mode);
end;
/

to execute the above procedure....

sql> exec exec_func('1','xxx',2)

begin
  dbms_output.put_line(
   x_pkg.getstatus(document_id => '&document_id',
                                                        document_type => '&document_type',
                                                        document_mode => '&document_mode')
  );
end;

Place this block into SQL Window of PL/SQL Developer and press "Execute".
You will be prompted for parameters.
The result you will see in "Output" tab.
