The Interface

  • bool TryCancelTimeout(T cancelledItem) Cancels the timeout count for the object if it has not already been timed out Returns 'true' if the cancelledItem's timeout count was successfully cancelled, false if the cancelledItem's timeout was not being counted

  • event ItemTimedOutEventHandler ItemTimedOut An event which is invoked every time an object times out The delegate used by this event is using an EventArgs type which also has a TimedOutItem property of type T
