I wander if it can be done using SqlParameter.

One thing for sure, you can do it by calling your SP in a plain query:

exec dbo.YourSPName Param1Value

exec dbo.YourSPName Param1Value can be executed in SQL Server studio code window.
I am asking for an example in a C# program.

here is an example:

try
{
    // Create and Open the SQL server connection object
    using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=HedgeFund_PRD;Integrated Security=SSPI;"))
    {
        con.Open();
        ////  Create a command object and specify the Stored Procedure name and connection as well
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("exec dbo.spTest 1, 1, '1960-01-01', '2013-12-31'", con);
        //  Set the command object
        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
        // Execute the command
        using (SqlDataReader rd = cmd.ExecuteReader())
        {
            int count = 0;
            while (rd.Read())
            {
                count++;
            }
            MessageBox.Show(string.Format("There are {0} rows.", count));
        }
    }
}
catch (Exception e)
{
    MessageBox.Show(e.Message);
}

To clarify, I am looking for positional specification with SQLParameter.

if you look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.sqlclient.sqlparameter(v=vs.110).aspx, you will find that all the overloads of the SQLParameter constructor requires the name of the parameter, none allows the position.

In the SP call, you can use parameter names you define yourself, like @P1 and following, and then use the self-defined names for filling a SQLParameter collection.
