[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates an OdbcParameter and sets some of its properties.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub CreateOdbcParameter()
    Dim myParameter As New OdbcParameter("Price", OdbcType.Decimal)
    myParameter.Value = 3.1416
    myParameter.Precision = 8
    myParameter.Scale = 4
End Sub 'CreateOdbcParameter

public void CreateOdbcParameter() 
    OdbcParameter myParameter = new OdbcParameter("Price", OdbcType.Decimal);
    myParameter.Value = 3.1416;
    myParameter.Precision = 8;
    myParameter.Scale = 4;

    void CreateOdbcParameter()
        OdbcParameter* myParameter = new OdbcParameter(S"Price", OdbcType::Decimal);
        myParameter->Value = __box(3.1416);
        myParameter->Precision = 8;
        myParameter->Scale = 4;
