Do you mean a free service that you can use to get the meaning? In that case it doesn't matter what language it is written in as you can consume it in any client.
As for open source code that provides exactly that - the answer is "probably not". A webservice is quite simple to write, and you are basically asking for a lookup service. Most tutorials will already give you that basics.
Only thing you'd need to acquire is a free dictionary. You could use the wiktionary for that.
You'd be getting defintions of the words by the way; meaning of the word may vary by locale and context and cannot yet be determined by machines.

I have an application that creates an Excel workbook from a template. After the workbook is created I populate each Worksheet. I'm attempting to make the cells that contain headers and other data describing text read only.
Here are my latest two attempts:
Worksheet ws = m_wkbk.Sheets;
// Attempt 1
ws.Range["A1", "E1"].Style.Locked = true; // This runs but has no impact on the launched sheet.// Attempt 2
Range range = (Range)ws.get_Range(ws.Cells[1, 1], ws.Cells[1, 5]); // Runtime error
range.Locked = true;
I want to design new third part software about pdf files because I want to convert pdf files to word files.
I have tried other third part software to support my codes, but everyone third part software can't get the good results that can't convert all of essay in pdf files to word files.
My idea about new third part tools:
First step: Convert to pdf to xml
Second step: Convert to xml to word
When I want to convert pdf files to xml files, I find out a thing that I can't store all of words in pdf files to byte arrays because everyone byte arrays are incorrect so when I want to read xml files and convert xml files to word files, the result is incorrect.
How to read pdf file and store the pdf files to xml files?
I have created proxy services by add web reference in my Xamarin.Droid project to access asmx webservice.
Eg: I have a webservice for feature master
when I make a direct request with URL "http://XX.XX.XXX.XXX/tabsaleswithdatasync.asmx/FeatureMaster"
I am getting following info
EngageWebReference.TabSalesWithDataSync objProxy = new EngageWebReference.TabSalesWithDataSync();
objProxy.FeatureMasterCompleted += ObjProxy_FeatureMasterCompleted;
private void ObjProxy_CityMasterCompleted(object sender, System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs e)
// here I am getting XMLException as data at the root level is invalid. line 1 position 1.
throw new NotImplementedException();
Can anyone suggest how to make async call get the desired result into a variable eg:
List<featuremaster> res = new List<featuremaster>
res = GetFeatureMasterList();
Alternatively the agent you're using to make the request (such as HttpClient) can be configured to send custom accept headers, and if the web service supports it you can request the data in XML form instead, which was the second part of my suggestion.
