I created a stored procedure that takes in three parameter and returns and OUTPUT parameter which is an Integer. (No columns... just the output parameter)

How can I user a Table Adapter to return the Integer Output parameters value?

My code (below) errors stating that a DataTable can not be converted to an integer.

How do I do fix this?
 
Public Function GetPickTicketID(ByVal ComponentID As String, ByVal Inventory As String, ByVal ClientID As String) As Integer
        Dim intRecordID As Integer = IDAdapter.GetPickTicketID(ComponentID, Inventory, ClientID)
    End Function

Open in new window

Assuming ClientID is your OUTPUT parameter, try:
Dim intRecordID As Nullable(Of Integer) = 0
IDAdapter.GetPickTicketID(1, 2, intRecordID)

How to I return the value the GetPickTicketID method?

I can pass the intRecordID value into the method as you've instructed but how do I get the returned value from my method?  If I attempt to return the IDAdapter method I still get an error of  "DataTable can not be converted to an integer."

In other words, when I call the GetPickTicketID TableAdaptor method it should pass back (Via the Output parameter) a single integer value.  Something like 1 or 23 or 456.  My function need to return whatever that value is.

Please advise.

OUTPUT parameters from stored procedures are represented as ByRef parameters to the method call. So if you put you code as per my last post the OUTPUT parameters value will be written to the "intRecordID" variable, which you can then return from your method.
