incremental update stored procedure return value

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
hi there; using asp.net (c#, 3.5) i would like to send my stored procedure a value (ie. myPage) and have my stored procedure:

1. select the record that pertains to this value in my hit counter table,
2. update the current stored value by 1
3. return the new value to my .aspx page

here is my existing code:


        string strMyPage= txtMyPage.Text;

        string strConnection = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["myDB"];

        SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(strConnection);

        SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand("CSP_Update_HitCounter", myConnection);
        myCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

        myCommand.Parameters.Add("@myPage", SqlDbType.Text).Value = strMyPage;


stored procedure:

@count int,
@myPage varchar(50)
UPDATE dbo.tblCount
SET @count = fldCount + 1
WHERE(fldPage= @myPage)
      /* SET NOCOUNT ON */
      RETURN @count

This is my best crack at it but isn't quite right.  Also not sure how to retrieve the returned value in my asp.cs page.

suggestions?  thanks all.
