Can't get my stored proc OUTPUT parameters to come back in my ASP.NET application

I'm unable to get my OUTPUT parameters to come back properly. I have ran my stored proc with the values I'm using in my app in query analyzer and it works fine. I'm going crazy.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dim myConnection As New SqlConnection("server=(local);database=uw_data;uid=jrmcintosh;pwd=ncr3170")
            myConnection.Open()

            Dim myCommand As New SqlCommand("usp_sel_getuser", myConnection)
            myCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            Dim uwuser As New SqlParameter("@user", SqlDbType.VarChar, 1)
            uwuser.Value = txtEmail.Text
            myCommand.Parameters.Add(uwuser)
            Dim pass As New SqlParameter("@password", SqlDbType.VarChar, 1)
            pass.Value = txtPassword.Text
            myCommand.Parameters.Add(pass)
            Dim success As New SqlParameter("@success", SqlDbType.Int, 4)
            success.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
            myCommand.Parameters.Add(success)
            Dim userid As New SqlParameter("@userid", SqlDbType.VarChar, 1)
            userid.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
            myCommand.Parameters.Add(userid)
            myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

            Dim count As Int16 = success.Value
            Session("userid") = userid.Value

            lblcount.Text = count

            myConnection.Close()

jrmcintoshAuthor Commented:
yes

CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.usp_sel_getuser

@user varchar(100),
@password varchar(100),
@success int OUTPUT,
@userid varchar(100) OUTPUT

AS

SELECT * from uw_users where userid = @user  AND pass = @password

SET @userid = (SELECT userid from uw_users where userid = @user AND pass = @password)

SET @success = (select COUNT(*) from uw_users where userid = @user AND pass = @password)

This is my first time using this method of calling a stored procedure. I have been using the enterprise library method for the past year so this is new to me...

So, your stp should look something like

CREATE PROCEDURE usp_sel_getuser
@user varchar(50),   -- This is a input parameter.
@password varchar(50),
@success int OUTPUT,
@userid varchar OUTPUT
AS  
-- here you do something.

Also, I am  not sure wetheryou set the length of your params correctly in the VB code

I think you set the size wrong, if im not mistaken, the third param is the lengh, so try this: (I chanced the 3rd param from 1 to 100 in 3 places.)

     myConnection.Open()

            Dim myCommand As New SqlCommand("usp_sel_getuser", myConnection)
            myCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            Dim uwuser As New SqlParameter("@user", SqlDbType.VarChar, 100)
            uwuser.Value = txtEmail.Text
            myCommand.Parameters.Add(uwuser)
            Dim pass As New SqlParameter("@password", SqlDbType.VarChar, 100)
            pass.Value = txtPassword.Text
            myCommand.Parameters.Add(pass)
            Dim success As New SqlParameter("@success", SqlDbType.Int, 4)
            success.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
            myCommand.Parameters.Add(success)
            Dim userid As New SqlParameter("@userid", SqlDbType.VarChar, 100)
            userid.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
            myCommand.Parameters.Add(userid)
            myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

            Dim count As Int16 = success.Value
            Session("userid") = userid.Value

            lblcount.Text = count

            myConnection.Close()
