TcpClient.ReceiveTimeout Property

Gets or sets the amount of time a TcpClient will wait to receive data once a read operation is initiated.

Namespace:  System.Net.Sockets
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public int ReceiveTimeout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The time-out value of the connection in milliseconds. The default value is 0.

The ReceiveTimeout property determines the amount of time that the Read method will block until it is able to receive data. This time is measured in milliseconds. If the time-out expires before Read successfully completes, TcpClient throws a IOException. There is no time-out by default.

Windows Mobile for Pocket PC, Windows Mobile for Smartphone, Windows CE Platform Note: In .NET Compact Framework applications, the ReceiveTimeout enumeration value is supported but reserved for future use. Because the ReceiveTimeout property uses this enumeration value, it will raise SocketException until the enumeration value is available in a future release of the .NET Compact Framework.

The following code example sets and gets the receive time out.

// Sets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout = 5000;

// Gets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property. 
if (tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout == 5000)
    Console.WriteLine ("The receive time out limit was successfully set " + tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout.ToString ());
   // Sets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
   tcpClient->ReceiveTimeout = 5;

   // Gets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
   if (tcpClient->ReceiveTimeout == 5)
	    Console::WriteLine(S"The receive time out limit was successfully set {0}", __box(tcpClient->ReceiveTimeout));
