There is a way to set a timeout on GetValues of an AFAttribute ?


We have an application where user setup elements in AF with a given template and then set a PI Point to an attribute. Sometimes, the choosen PI point have too many values and the application will query forever on a 30 days time range. We want to set a timeout on GetValues then if the timeout is reach we will just come back to the user and let him know about the problem / please choose another tag.


That said, we dont want to set a 'global' timeout for a given PI server ... this is only needed for that application and for that particular call.


Thanks in advance.
