Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page
Applies to
auHTTP and auThread components.  

property WaitTimeout: Integer;  

The WaitTimeout property specifies the time interval (limit), in milliseconds unit, which application able to wait until the HTTP request will be completed.  
For example, if the maximum time which you can allow to complete HTTP request is 5 seconds, set this value to 5000 (milliseconds). If application can wait infinitely, set WaitTimeout to 0.  
iiinfo When the timeout is expired, the component automatically terminates the HTTP request. To be notified when the WaitTimeout is expired — write OnWaitTimeoutExpired event handler.  

The WaitTimeout only works together with WaitThread property, only when it set to True.
