Parameters

Type: System.String

The name of the configuration file.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The service endpoint of the channel factory is null.

If configurationName is null, only the behaviors specified in the service endpoint are loaded. If the wildcard, "*", is used, any endpoint configuration in the client configuration file is used, but only if there is precisely one. Otherwise an exception is thrown. Any other value for the configurationName, including the empty string "", matches the endpoint configuration with the same name. See the Client Configuration topic for a discussion of the client configuration.
