IDbConnection.ConnectionTimeout Property


Gets the time to wait (in seconds) while trying to establish a connection before terminating the attempt and generating an error.

 property int ConnectionTimeout { int get(); };
public int ConnectionTimeout { get; }
member this.ConnectionTimeout : int
Public ReadOnly Property ConnectionTimeout As Integer

Property Value

The time (in seconds) to wait for a connection to open. The default value is 15 seconds.


A value of 0 indicates no limit to the wait time, rather than no wait time, and should be avoided in a ConnectionString because it would cause the connection attempt to wait indefinitely.
