TimeOut

USHORT

The TimeOut property controls automatic record set buffering for the managed view (see BUFFER in the Language Reference). Some file drivers do not support buffering.

TimeOut specifies the number of seconds the buffered records are considered "trustworthy" in a network environment. If the TimeOut period has expired, the VIEW fills a request for records from the backend database rather than from the buffer.

Implementation:

The Init method sets the TimeOut property to sixty (60). The Open method implements the buffering specified by the PagesAhead, PagesBehind, PageSize, and TimeOut properties.
