Use to reproduce exception
Steps to reproduce this:
1. Decorate a property in a class that derives from ConfigurationElement with
[ConfigurationProperty(nameProperty, IsKey = true, DefaultValue = "Name", IsRequired = true)]
[StringValidator(MinLength = 1)]
2. Set property value to null
3. A ConfigurationErrorsException is thrown.
In Microsoft .NET, you can set a property value to null, even if the property is decorated with a [StringValidator] attribute.
