public void Alter(
	TimeSpan transactionTerminationTime
)

Parameters

transactionTerminationTime
Type: TimeSpan
A TimeSpan object value that specifies a period of time to let transactions complete before persisting the property changes with the Alter method.

db = New Database(srv, "Test_SMO_Database")
'Create the database on the instance of SQL Server.
db.Create()
'Reference the database and display the date when it was created.
db = srv.Databases("Test_SMO_Database")
Console.WriteLine(db.CreateDate)
'Remove the database.
db.Drop()
