Adding a TimeOut parameter to a <asp:SQLDataSource

Would like to know if there is a way to add a timeout parameter to the <asp:SqlDataSource command.

     <asp:SqlDataSource ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:MTASP2ConnectionString %>"
            ID="SqlDataViewJobs"
            EnableCaching="true"
            runat="server"
            SelectCommand=""
            DataSourceMode = "DataSet"
            OnSelected="SqlDataViewJobs_Selected">
            <SelectParameters>
            </SelectParameters>
       </asp:SqlDataSource>

I tried an alternative approach (below), but for some reason Sorting and Paging no longer work:

        SqlConnection SqlConn = Data.GetSqlConn();
        SqlConn.Open();
        SqlCommand SqlCmd = new SqlCommand(SQL, SqlConn);
        SqlCmd.CommandTimeout = 120;
        SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter();
        adapter.SelectCommand = SqlCmd;
        DataSet myDataSet = new DataSet();
        adapter.Fill(myDataSet);
        GridViewJobs.DataSource = myDataSet.Tables[0];
        GridViewJobs.DataBind();
        SqlConn.Close();
        int count = myDataSet.Tables[0].Rows.Count;

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

Sorting and Paging do not works because when you sort or change your current page you must Bind your gridView again, is not necessary to do it with you use sqlDataSource

You are correct.  I had to add a bunch of code in order to keep track of the Page Number and Sort Fields (both ASC and DESC).  Here is some of the code:

        if (ViewState["JobsDataSet"] == null)
        {

            SqlConnection SqlConn = Data.GetSqlConn();
            SqlConn.Open();

            SqlCommand SqlCmd = new SqlCommand(SQL, SqlConn);
            SqlCmd.CommandTimeout = 120;
            adapter.SelectCommand = SqlCmd;
            adapter.Fill(myDataSet, "Jobs");
            ViewState["JobsDataSet"] = myDataSet;
            SqlConn.Close();
        }
        else
        {
            myDataSet = (DataSet)ViewState["JobsDataSet"];
        }

        // Prepare the sort expression using the gridSortDirection and gridSortExpression properties
        string sortExpression;
        if (gridSortDirection == SortDirection.Ascending)
            sortExpression = gridSortExpression + " ASC";
        else
            sortExpression = gridSortExpression + " DESC";
        // Sort the data
        myDataSet.Tables["Jobs"].DefaultView.Sort = sortExpression;

        // Bind to the GridView
        GridViewJobs.DataSource = myDataSet.Tables["Jobs"].DefaultView;
        GridViewJobs.DataBind();

It would be a lot, lot easier if there was a way to change the TimeOut parameter on the asp:SqlDataSource control.

Thanks
