Insert data in C# using a stored procedure

Hi I am new to and c# I am looking to do a simple insert into a datbase using a stored procedure. I have the following code in the front end of my file. Is anything missing from this data source what would the code in the code behind file need to be to execute this stored procedure. I am very new to this so please if possible send me the code.

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="sqlinsert" runat="server" 
            ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:PTConnectionString %>"
                  <asp:Parameter Name="cid" Type="Int16" />
                  <asp:Parameter Name="EventStartDate" Type="DateTime" />
                  <asp:Parameter Name="EvendtEndDate" Type="DateTime" />
                  <asp:Parameter Name="PatientId" Type="Int16" />
                  <asp:Parameter Name="EventId" Type="Int16" />
                  <asp:Parameter Name="PatientStatusChange" Type="Int16" />
                  <asp:Parameter Name="Reason" Type="Int16" />
                  <asp:Parameter Name="Memo"  Type="String" />
                  <asp:Parameter Name="EventTypeID" Type="Int16" />
                  <asp:Parameter Name="LoginID" Type="Int16" />

Hi! Do it something like this.

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        SqlDataSource1.InsertCommand = "YourStoredProcedureName";
        SqlDataSource1.InsertCommandType = SqlDataSourceCommandType.StoredProcedure;
        SqlDataSource1.InsertParameters.Add("@Parameter1", DbType.String, "value1");
You will probably want to bind this SQL Datasource to either a DetailsView or a FormView control. These controls will take care of the majority of the work.

1) Drag Data component to the form
2) Click the smart tag and select this SqlDataSource as your datasource (smart tag is the little arrow at the top right when the control is selected)
3) Set the DefaultMode to be Insert.

These controls will take care of the code to execute the Insert automatically.
