i have query that take from 30 second to 40 second on sql server to return data
where i try to call from my page
it give me that error

Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.

As you are probably using a SqlCommand for calling the query, you can specify the timeout for that one:

using (SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection(Configuration.DefaultConnectionString))
    using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(query, cn))
        cmd.CommandTimeout = 60;

Or specify the timeout for the connection in the web.config (which I will not recommend).

You can set the Connection Timeout=value(may be in sec or millisec can't remember) in connection string for the long running query to achieve this
best of luck.....

If you give cmd.CommandTimeOut = 0 .Your client API will never time out form SQLSERVER.It will last until the operation is got over.

Hi Rajesh,

Do you really think setting that value to 0 and running forever sql server is a good idea??? I dont yhink so.
