Exception Condition

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 property always returns false for implementations of XmlReader that do not support DTD information. In this case, calling ResolveEntity throws an exception.
