InvalidOperationException

An XmlWriter 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.”

If text is either null or String.Empty, this method writes an empty CDATA block, for example <![CDATA[]]>.

For the asynchronous version of this method, see WriteCDataAsync.

The following example writes an XML file representing a book.
