C# WCF proxy Help me understand this example code...

I am trying to use this class for calling my WCF Service


http://electroholic.com/?p=10

in the sample the author has this code
ExampleWCFClient client = proxy = new ExampleWCFClient();

this will not compile.

        public static Exception Invoke(SafeProxyInvocationHandler del)
        {
            return Invoke(null, del);
        }
 
        public static Exception Invoke(string messageTemplate,
                                        SafeProxyInvocationHandler del)
        {
            if (del == null)
                throw new ArgumentException("Expected delegate instance for handler to invoke!");
 
            ICommunicationObject proxy = null;

I did request of the asker to post the code where he was using that line. As It is not in the first post. And post the error he was getting. Since I added value to the question, and several days elapsed, I'm confident that at least partial value should be awarded.
