Property Value

A TimeSpan that represents the amount of time the server should search for a page of results. The default value is -1 seconds, which means to search indefinitely.

The minimum resolution of this property is one second. Fractions of seconds are ignored.

When the time limit is reached, the server stops searching and returns the results that have accumulated up to that point, along with a cookie containing the information about where to resume searching.


This property only applies to searches where PageSize is set to a value that is not the default of -1.
