Property Value

The Timespan that specifies how long the read operation has to complete before timing out. The default value is 10 minute.

Exception typeCondition


The value is less than zero or too large.

If transaction flow is enabled on the binding or the channel, the operation may take longer to execute than the specified timeout. In these circumstances the operation fails due to the expired timeout and the transaction aborts appropriately.
