XmlReaderSettings.Async Property

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Gets or sets whether asynchronous XmlReader methods can be used on a particular XmlReader instance.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assemblies:   System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
  System.Xml.ReaderWriter (in System.Xml.ReaderWriter.dll)

public bool Async { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if asynchronous methods can be used; otherwise, false.

You must set this value to true when you create a new XmlReader instance if you want to use asynchronous XmlReader methods on that instance. After the XmlReader instance is created, the Async property is read-only. The default value of this property is false.

This flag is ignored by the XmlReader.Create overload. This means that if you create a new XmlReader based on an existing XmlReader, the async behavior depends on the input XmlReader, and you cannot use the Async flag to change the async behavior.
