Hi,

I m using the time out feature of Webservice request,  and i want to catch this timeout exception by a specific class, not by system.net.webexception class, i tried to look if theres  any specific timeoutexception class for web service request,  but didnt find any yet.  

The reason is that i need to display custom timeout messages when time out occurs, not just   exception  message through e.Message.

Can someone help me with this.

Can you not just catch the System.Net.WebException and then throw a timeout exception class of your own if the webexception message is "The operation has timed-out.".

Actually, there is a special kind of WebException for Timeout but its not another class.

Look at the WebException.Status property, if it is WebExceptionStatus.Timeout then you know you have a timeout.
