OracleConnection.ConnectionTimeout Property

 

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

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

[<BrowsableAttribute(false)>]
override ConnectionTimeout : int with get

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 specified is less than 0.

You can set the amount of time a connection waits to time out by using the Connect Timeout or Connection Timeout keywords in the connection string. A value of 0 indicates no limit, and should be avoided in a ConnectionString because an attempt to connect waits indefinitely.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Unlike the Connection object in the other .NET Framework data providers (SQL Server, OLE DB, and ODBC), OracleConnection does not support a ConnectionTimeout property. Setting a connection time-out either with a property or in the connection string has no effect, and the value returned is always zero. OracleConnection also does not support a Database property or a ChangeDatabase method.
