How to add Parameters to a SQL INSERT statement

I have a Stored Procedure I'm trying to use to add records from an ASP.Net 2.0/VB webform into a SQL Server 2000 database.

This seems to be working (no errors so far):
        cmdTest.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@txtContactContract", Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 10))
        cmdTest.Parameters("@txtContactContract").Value = txtContactContractTitle.Text

but I want to shorten it to something like:
cmdTest.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@txtContactContract", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = txtContactContract.Text)

but I get this error:
The SqlParameterCollection only accepts non-null SqlParameter type objects, not Boolean objects.

What did I do wrong?

ALTER Procedure sp_SYEP_Employers_NewRecord
		@txtEmployerName varchar(50), 
		@ddlOrganizationType varchar(50), 
		@txtFedID varchar(50), 
		@txtContactContract varchar(50), 
		@txtContactContractTitle varchar(50), 
		@txtCompanyStreet varchar(50), 
		@txtCompanyCity varchar(50), 
		@txtCompanyState varchar(50), 
		@txtCompanyZip varchar(50), 
		@txtCompanyContractContactTelephone varchar(50), 
		@txtCompanyContractContactFAX varchar(50), 
		@txtCompanyContractContactCell varchar(50), 
		@txtCompanyContractContactEmail varchar(50), 
		@txtContactProgram varchar(50), 
		@txtContactProgramTitle varchar(50), 
		@txtContactProgramAddress varchar(50), 
		@txtContactProgramCity varchar(50),	
		@txtContactProgramState varchar(50), 
		@txtContactProgramZip varchar(50), 
		@txtContactProgramPhone varchar(50), 
		@txtContactProgramFAX varchar(50),
		@txtContactProgramCell varchar(50), 
		@txtContactProgramEmail varchar(50), 
		@txtWorksitesRequestedNumber varchar(50), 
		@ddlOrgHasContract varchar(50), 
		@ddlConfirmUnderstand varchar(50)

That should be:
cmdTest.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@txtContactContract", SqlDbType.VarChar)).Value = txtContactContract.Text

it should be

Parameters.Add returns a type of Parameter, so you can use it directly
        cmdTest.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@txtContactContract", Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 10))
like
        cmdTest.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@txtContactContract", Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 10)).Value = txtContactContractTitle.Text
