TcpClient.ReceiveTimeout TcpClient.ReceiveTimeout TcpClient.ReceiveTimeout TcpClient.ReceiveTimeout Property

Definition

Gets or sets the amount of time a TcpClient will wait to receive data once a read operation is initiated.

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

Property Value

The time-out value of the connection in milliseconds. The default value is 0.

Examples

The following code example sets and gets the receive time out.

// Sets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
tcpClient->ReceiveTimeout = 5;

// Gets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
if ( tcpClient->ReceiveTimeout == 5 )
      Console::WriteLine( "The receive time out limit was successfully set {0}", tcpClient->ReceiveTimeout );


// Sets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout = 5000;

// Gets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
if (tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout == 5000)
    Console.WriteLine ("The receive time out limit was successfully set " + tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout.ToString ());

' Sets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout = 5

' Gets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
If tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout = 5 Then
   Console.WriteLine(("The receive time out limit was successfully set " + tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout.ToString()))
End If

Remarks

The ReceiveTimeout property determines the amount of time that the Read method will block until it is able to receive data. This time is measured in milliseconds. If the time-out expires before Read successfully completes, TcpClient throws a IOException. There is no time-out by default.
