Gets the interval of time after which the receive method, invoked by a communication object, times out.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
All operations that are potentially lengthy must have a timeout. Methods that don't take explicit timeouts, must delegate to those that do with default timeouts or must not do any work that blocks. Timeouts are the total limit for high-level operations for which they are to complete, so any retries must be limited to the time not already consumed by earlier tries.
