Gets or sets the length of time until the request times out.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
A Domain Name System (DNS) query may take up to 15 seconds to return or time out. If your request contains a host name that requires resolution and you set to a value less than 15 seconds, it may take 15 seconds or more before a WebException is thrown to indicate a time-out on your request.
The following code example sets the property. Refer to the complete example in the FileWebRequest class.
' Create a Uri object.to access the file requested by the user. Dim myUrl As New Uri("file://" + fileName) ' Create a FileWebRequest object.for the requeste file. myFileWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.CreateDefault(myUrl), FileWebRequest) ' Set the time-out to the value selected by the user. myFileWebRequest.Timeout = timeout
