Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
The XmlReader is not positioned on an element.
The current element contains child elements.
The element content cannot be converted to a Decimal.
The method is called with null arguments.
An XmlReader method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message “An asynchronous operation is already in progress.”
This method reads the start tag, the contents of the element, and moves the reader past the end element tag. It expands entities and ignores processing instructions and comments. The element can only contain simple content. That is, it cannot have child elements.
