another way of structuring the sqlcommand if parameter is an OUTPUT

Here is one way to code a class if a parameter passed is an OUTPUT

1. new SqlParameter("@NewID", SqlDbType.Int) {DbType = DbType.Int32, Direction = ParameterDirection.Output }

however my current code is structured this way...
2. myCommand.Parameters.Add(new sqlParameter("@lastupdated", _lastupdated));

I want to add the output parameter code underneath with the same code style  rather than this  
"new SqlParameter("@NewID", SqlDbType.Int) {DbType = DbType.Int32, Direction = ParameterDirection.Output }"

how will I add the Direction and Parameter definition using that style of coding like #2?

Hi zachvaldez;

There is no way that I know of to feed the direction parameter as a parameter to the constructor. First create the parameter and supply that to your line 2 as shown below.
' Add the input parameter and set its properties.
Dim parameter As New SqlParameter()
parameter.ParameterName = "@lastupdated"
parameter.SqlDbType = SqlDbType.DateTime
parameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input
parameter.Value = _lastupdated

' Add the parameter to the Parameters collection.
myCommand.Parameters.Add(parameter)
