Examples

The following example first displays the contents of a connection string that does not specify the "Connect Timeout" value, sets the ConnectTimeout property, and then displays the new connection string.

using System.Data.SqlClient;

class Program
{
    static void Main()
    {
        try
        {
            string connectString =
                "Server=(local);Initial Catalog=AdventureWorks;" +
                "Integrated Security=true";
            SqlConnectionStringBuilder builder =
                new SqlConnectionStringBuilder(connectString);
            Console.WriteLine("Original: " + builder.ConnectionString);
            Console.WriteLine("ConnectTimeout={0}",
                builder.ConnectTimeout);
            builder.ConnectTimeout = 100;
            Console.WriteLine("Modified: " + builder.ConnectionString);

            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to finish.");
            Console.ReadLine();

        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
        }
    }
}
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
    
Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        Try
            Dim connectString As String = _
             "Server=(local);Initial Catalog=AdventureWorks;" & _
             "Integrated Security=True"
            Dim builder As New SqlConnectionStringBuilder(connectString)
            Console.WriteLine("Original: " & builder.ConnectionString)
            Console.WriteLine("ConnectTimeout={0}", _
                builder.ConnectTimeout)
            builder.ConnectTimeout = 100
            Console.WriteLine("Modified: " & builder.ConnectionString)

            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to finish.")
            Console.ReadLine()

        Catch ex As Exception
            Console.WriteLine(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

End Module

Remarks

This property corresponds to the "Connect Timeout", "connection timeout", and "timeout" keys within the connection string.

When opening a connection to a Azure SQL Database, set the connection timeout to 30 seconds.
