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 Value

Type: System.Int32
The time in seconds to wait for the command to execute. The default is 30 seconds.

Implements

IDbCommand.CommandTimeout

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

NoteNote:

The CommandTimeout property will be ignored during asynchronous method calls such as BeginExecuteReader.

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.
