Property Value

Type: System.TimeSpan

You can address the problem caused by some antivirus applications, when writing information back to the scanned files, by setting the DelayNotificationTimeout property.

NoteNote

The problem occurs because file changes caused by antivirus scanning cannot be distinguished from the ones made by the user. The end result is the restart of the application whose files are being scanned.

The following example shows how to use the DelayNotificationTimeout property.


// Get the DelayNotificationTimeout property value.
Response.Write("DelayNotificationTimeout: " +
  configSection.DelayNotificationTimeout.ToString() + "<br>");

// Set the DelayNotificationTimeout property value to 10 seconds.
configSection.DelayNotificationTimeout = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10);
