OdbcConnection.ConnectionTimeout Property

 

Gets or sets the time to wait while trying to establish a connection before terminating the attempt and generating an error.

Namespace:   System.Data.Odbc
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public int ConnectionTimeout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The time in seconds to wait for a connection to open. The default value is 15 seconds.

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

The value set is less than 0.

Unlike the .NET Framework data providers for SQL Server and OLE DB, the .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC does not support setting this property as a connection string value, because it is not a valid ODBC connection keyword. To specify a connection time-out, set the ConnectionTimeout property before calling Open. This is equivalent to setting the ODBC SQLSetConnectAttr SQL_ATTR_LOGIN_TIMOUT attribute.
