You can do something like this:

SqlParameter[] param = {
	new SqlParameter("@ParameterName", SqlDbType.VarChar, 2),
	new SqlParameter("@ParameterName2", SqlDbType.Int),
	new SqlParameter("@ParameterName3", SqlDbType.Bit)
};

param[0].Value = ValueParameter1;
param[1].Value = ValueParameter2;
param[2].Direction = ParameterDirection.Output

SqlParameter sparam = new SqlParameter("@invar",SqlDbType.Int)      
sparam.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input;


//ParameterDirection has the following values avaliable: Input, InputOutput, Output and ReturnValue
