Gets the time to wait while trying to establish a connection before terminating the attempt and generating an error.
Assembly: System.Data (in System.Data.dll)
You can set the amount of time a connection waits to time out by using the ConnectTimeout or Connection Timeout keywords in the connection string. A value of 0 indicates no limit, and should be avoided in a ConnectionString because an attempt to connect waits indefinitely.
