public static readonly TimeSpan InfiniteTimeout

Field Value

Type: System.TimeSpan

TimeToBeReceived and TimeToReachQueue require a value that specifies a time-out. For the former, the time-out is the maximum time allowed for a message to be received from the queue. For the latter, the time-out is the time allowed for a message to reach the queue. In both cases, you can specify the time-out as a number of seconds or use InfiniteTimeout to indicate that no time-out exists.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the InfiniteTimeout field.
