Enabling Cancel Query

The cancel query feature allows users to stop their slow or incorrect queries. If the query does not return records within a given number of seconds (the timemout period), a dialog box appears, which allows the user to cancel the query.

The cancel query feature is enabled through the CancelQueryTimeOut parameter in the [SWE] section of the application configuration file (CFG).

To enable the cancel query feature

  1. Open your application's configuration file, for example uagent.cfg.
  2. Change the CancelQueryTimeOut parameter to

    CancelQueryTimeOut = timeout

    where timeout is any integer of zero or greater.

    For example, if CancelQueryTimeOut = 3, the cancel query dialog box appears if records are not returned within 3 seconds.

    NOTE:  A timeout value of less than zero, for example, -1, disables the feature.
