I'll be running a very simple function using the HTTP quickGetStr. I'll only call it once or twice, but what happens if it fails because of no internet access? Can I setup a timeout for that function?
Did you try to set the ConnectTimeout? http://www.chilkatsoft.com/refdoc/vcCkHttpDoc.html#prop017
Ah! It is always obvious when someone else points it out! Many thanks :)
