How to connect to Oracle and ExecuteOracleScalar in C#

Well, once again C# just gets me in a tizzy.  Forgive me but I am used to VB.NET.  How in God's name do I create an Oracle connection and then ExecuteOracleScalar?  I've googled about 100 pages and have not found one example.  Nor is it in MSDN.  Nor is it in the help that comes with Visual Studio.  Apparently, it is 100 percent different from VB.NET.

Thanks in advance.

Ah, thank you.  I was leaving out the cast and also the cmd.Connection = conn;
