Im trying to specify a timeout length of the following code.  Like if it takes more than 7 seconds, then stop processing or something, and throw a TimeoutException or something.  Does anybody know how to do that?
public string ProcessHttpPost(string url)
            WebClient client = new WebClient();            
            byte[] bResponse = client.UploadValues(url, "POST", this.Values);
            return Encoding.ASCII.GetString(bResponse);

On the web.config file you can change the timeout duration on seconds.
