Exception Condition
InvalidOperationException

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.”

The binary content read methods include the ReadContentAsBase64, ReadContentAsBinHex, ReadElementContentAsBase64, and ReadElementContentAsBinHex methods. If this property returns false a NotSupportedException is returned when any of the binary read methods is called.

All Microsoft .NET Framework implementations of the XmlReader class return true for this property.
