Assembly: System.Data.OracleClient (in system.data.oracleclient.dll)
Property ValueThe time (in seconds) to wait for a connection to open. The default value is 15 seconds.
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.
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.
