OracleConnection.ConnectionTimeout OracleConnection.ConnectionTimeout OracleConnection.ConnectionTimeout OracleConnection.ConnectionTimeout Property

Definition

Gets the time to wait to establish a connection before terminating the attempt and generating an error.

public:
 virtual property int ConnectionTimeout { int get(); };
[System.ComponentModel.Browsable(false)]
public override int ConnectionTimeout { get; }
member this.ConnectionTimeout : int
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property ConnectionTimeout As Integer

Property Value

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

Exceptions

Remarks

You can set the amount of time a connection waits to time out by using the Connect Timeout or Connection Timeout keywords in the connection string. A value of 0 indicates no limit, and should be avoided in a ConnectionString because an attempt to connect waits indefinitely.

Note

Unlike the Connection object in the other .NET Framework data providers (SQL Server, OLE DB, and ODBC), OracleConnection does not support a ConnectionTimeout property. Setting a connection time-out either with a property or in the connection string has no effect, and the value returned is always zero. OracleConnection also does not support a Database property or a ChangeDatabase method.
