PDF Timeout Setting

When the reporting runtime creates PDF documents using the Bullzip PDF Printer, it has a timeout setting to control the process. This timeout will make sure that the NAV service tier regains control even if the process does not run as planned. Up until build 1068 this timeout had a default value of 5 minutes. However, we have started to see complex and big reports taking longer than that to produce the PDF. Therefore, we have now increased the default timeout to 1 hour.

Since, we cannot guess what the best timeout value is in a specific installation, it is now possible to configure it. If you want something different than the default value, you can create a registry setting with you own timeout.


Name: DeviceTimeoutMilliseconds

Value: Custom timeout in milliseconds.

If this value is not found in the registry, the reporting runtime will use the default value.
