Gets the default interval of time provided for an open operation to complete.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
All operations that are potentially lengthy must have a timeout. Methods that do not take explicit timeouts, must delegate to those methods with default timeouts or must not do any work that blocks. Timeouts are the total limit for high-level operations for which they are to complete, so any retries must be limited to the time not already accessed by earlier tries.
