public:
 property int ReadWriteTimeout { int get(); void set(int value); };
public int ReadWriteTimeout { get; set; }
member this.ReadWriteTimeout : int with get, set
Public Property ReadWriteTimeout As Integer

Property Value

The number of milliseconds before the reading or writing times out. The default value is 300,000 milliseconds (5 minutes).

Exceptions

The value specified for a set operation is less than or equal to zero and is not equal to Infinite.

Remarks

The ReadWriteTimeout is used when writing to the stream returned by the GetRequestStream method or reading from the stream returned by the GetResponseStream method.

Specifically, the ReadWriteTimeout property controls the time-out for the Read method, which is used to read the stream returned by the GetResponseStream method, and for the Write method, which is used to write to the stream returned by the GetRequestStream method. If the time-out period is exceeded, the calling method throws a WebException with WebExceptionStatus set to Timeout.

To specify the amount of time to wait for the request to complete, use the Timeout property.
