Property Value

The TimeSpan that specifies the interval of time to wait for the receive method to time out.


All operations that are potentially lengthy must have a timeout. Methods that don't take explicit timeouts, must delegate to those that do 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 consumed by earlier tries.
