Is there a method to get the profile properties of a user in SharePoint client object model by passing Preferred Name of the user?

We are using UserProfileService web service and it has method to get the user profile by passing the username but not Preferred Name.

Thanks in advance.

Shorten the subject title. Put the question in the body. Just a suggestion.

I found the solution ....

User user = clientContext.Web.EnsureUser("Preferred Name");



Now user.LoginName will give the username of the user and then we can make use of the UserProfileService web service to get the user profile properties.

userprofileservice.UserProfileService svc = new userprofileservice.UserProfileService();

userprofileservice.PropertyData[] properties = svc.GetUserProfileByName(userNoeId);
