Increasing connection timeout in TouchKit

TouchKit has a hardcoded timeout of 10 seconds in VTouchKitApplicationConnection. Is there a reason this is not configurable? We have a data intensive application with long calls in the timeout message just gets in our way. Please help.


The timeout should be configurable indeed. Would you file a ticket to ?

BTW. If your app has long lasting tasks that take as long as 10 seconds, I’d highly suggest to run task in a separate thread and showing a ProgressIndicator during the task. That will create a much better experience for your app users. The ten seconds pause will not feel that long when you can stare the progress indicator and users know that the application is working as intended.


I created the ticket here:

We do show an animated spinning wheel. I am not sure a ProgressIndicator would create a visual result that is much different.
