I have this function and on the line

SqlParameter[3] smyparams;

I keep getting ";expected" error. I am not sure if this is the right
way to declare a sqlparameter array.

Pls assist.



public  int myInsert(Customer c)
    {
        string sql;
        sql = "insert into customers(customerid,companyname,contactname,country) values(@custid,@company,@contact,@country)";
        SqlParameter[3] smyparams;
       
        smyparams[0] = new SqlParameter("@custid", c.CustomerID);
        smyparams[1] = new SqlParameter("@company", c.CompanyName);
        smyparams[2] = new SqlParameter("@contact", c.ContactName);
        smyparams[3] = new SqlParameter("@country", c.Country);

        SqlHelper sh = new SqlHelper();
        return sh.ExecuteNonQuery(sql, myparams);
        //return SqlHelper.ExecuteNonQuery(sql, myparams);
       
    }

Try changing

SqlParameter[3] smyparams;
to
SqlParameter[] smyparams = new SqlParameter[4];

You could try using a command object, something like this:

string SQL = "insert into customers(customerid,companyname,contactname,country) values(@custid,@company,@contact,@country)";
SqlConnection Connection = new SqlConnection(ConnectionStrings["ConString"]));
            SqlCommand Command = new SqlCommand(SQL, Connection);
            Command.CommandType = CommandType.Text;

            Command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@custid", c.CustomerID);
            Command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@company", c.CompanyName);
            Command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@contact", c.ContactName);
            Command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@country", c.Country);

            Connection.Open();

            Command.ExecuteNonQuery();

            Connection.Close();
