Timeout Property

How long vault events may execute before timing out. (Windows only).

Syntax

 cbdrive.getTimeout([callback])
 cbdrive.setTimeout( timeout, [callback])

Default Value

0

Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for the getTimeout([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

The callback for the setTimeout([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

When an application is operating in Callback Mode, this property specifies how long the Vault* events may execute before timing out.

When this property is set to a non-zero value, and a Vault* event executes long enough for its timeout to expire, the driver cancels the underlying request by reporting an error to the OS. The tardy event still runs to completion, but any results it returns once finished are ignored since the underlying request has already been handled.

Setting this property to 0 disables event timeouts, which allows Vault* events to take as long as necessary to execute.

Note: This property cannot be changed within events.
