My stored procedure does this:

declare @result integer =0;
  select @result = sign(count(1)) from users where USERNAME=@UserName and PASSWORD=@Password and IS_ACTIVE = '1';
  return @result;

In vb.net how do I return the value of @result to my vb.net code?

In your stored procedure, you'll want to declare @result as one of the parameters as follows:

@result as int OUTPUT

In VB.NET, you'll want to pass in the parameter as follows:

Dim parameterResult As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter("@result", SqlDbType.int)
        parameterResult.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
        myCommand.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add(parameterResult)

You can then get the value from parameterNewId.value

AS
BEGIN
      SET NOCOUNT ON;
      @result as int OUTPUT;


That code give me a error: "Incorrect syntax near @result
