SqlCommand.CommandTimeout Property

Gets or sets the wait time before terminating the attempt to execute a command and generating an error.

Namespace: System.Data.SqlClient
Assembly: System.Data (in system.data.dll)

public override int CommandTimeout { get; set; }
/** @property */
public int get_CommandTimeout ()

/** @property */
public void set_CommandTimeout (int value)

public override function get CommandTimeout () : int

public override function set CommandTimeout (value : int)

Not applicable.

Property Value

The time in seconds to wait for the command to execute. The default is 30 seconds.

A value of 0 indications no limit, and should be avoided in a CommandTimeout because an attempt to execute a command will wait indefinitely.

CommandTimeout has no effect when the command is executed against a context connection (a SqlConnection opened with "context connection=true" in the connection string).

NoteNote:

This property is the cumulative time-out for all network reads during command execution or processing of the results. A time-out can still occur after the first row is returned, and does not include user processing time, only network read time.
