ManagementOptions.Timeout Property


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets or sets the time-out to apply to the operation. Note that for operations that return collections, this time-out applies to the enumeration through the resulting collection, not the operation itself (the ReturnImmediately property is used for the latter). This property is used to indicate that the operation should be performed semi-synchronously.

Namespace:   System.Management
Assembly:  System.Management (in System.Management.dll)

public TimeSpan Timeout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.TimeSpan

Returns a TimeSpan that defines the time-out time to apply to the operation.

The Timeout property is used in the corresponding semi-synchronous operation for the following classes: ObjectGetOptions, PutOptions, DeleteOptions, InvokeMethodOptions, EnumerationOptions, and EventWatcherOptions.

This property has no effect on the T:System.Management.ManagementScope.Connect method.

The default value for this property is MaxValue, which means the operation will block. The value specified must be positive.

Full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted code. For more information, see Using Libraries from Partially Trusted Code.
