We have a webpart that allows users to upload videos to YouTube. In testing, we were able to exceed the script timeout. I believe the default is 120 seconds.

Can this setting be changed / accommodated inside the web part, or can this only be changed in the web.config?


Use SPLongOperation for this kind of stuff:
