Renders HTML in a Web Part when a work item has timed out.

Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)

If a Web Part does not override the RenderWorkItemTimeout method, a default system error message is rendered. The timeout setting is specified by the value of the Timeout attribute of the <WebPartWorkItem> tag that is contained within the <SharePoint> tag in the web.config file.


The following code example shows how to override the RenderWorkItemTimeout method.
