A timeout for the class.
This property defines the timeout when sending data. A value of 0 means data will be sent asynchronously and a positive value means data is sent synchronously.
The class will use DoEvents to enter an efficient wait loop during any potential waiting period, making sure that all system events are processed immediately as they arrive. This ensures that the host application does not "freeze" and remains responsive.
If Timeout expires, and the operation is not yet complete, the component throws an exception. Please note that by default, all timeouts are inactivity timeouts, i.e. the timeout period is extended by Timeout seconds when any amount of data is successfully sent or received. The default value for the Timeout property is 60 seconds.
