Property Value

The time-out period, in minutes.

The Timeout property can be set in the Web.config file for an application using the timeout attribute of the sessionState configuration element, or you can set the Timeout property value directly using application code.

The Timeout property cannot be set to a value greater than 525,600 minutes (1 year). The default value is 20 minutes.

The following code example sets the timeout session attribute to 30 minutes in the Web.config file.

<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <sessionState 
      mode="InProc"
      cookieless="true"
      timeout="30" />
  </system.web>
</configuration>

The following code example sets the HttpSessionState.Timeout property to 45 minutes.
