I’ve been a Windows developer since 3.0 and caught the Visual Basic wave early with v1. I’ve released a “production” application in every version of VB since then (except VB for DOS). Focusing on enterprise, line-of-business development I’ve built Call Center Applications, Mortgage finance systems, Customer Relationship Management tools and more recently I’ve been in the Litigation Support/Electronic Data Discovery/Electronically Stored Information space.

Bing Code Snippets - C#, JavaScript, HTML and XML Code Snippets for Bing Devs

  • submit to reddit

Visual Studio Gallery - Bing Code Snippets

A collection of C#, JavaScript, HTML and XML code snippets for Bing developers.


The Bing Code Snippets package uses the Code Snippets technology of Visual Studio to provide blocks of code that you can insert into your C# or JavaScript Windows Store applications. These snippets support the following Bing technologies:

  • Translator control
  • Translator API
  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) control
  • Speech Recognition control
  • Speech Synthesis (Text to Speech)


The Bing Code Snippets package requires Visual Studio 2013 on Windows 8.1. In addition, working with Bing Translator, OCR, and Speech Recognition technologies require that you download the relevant controls and acquire credentials from the Windows Azure Data Marketplace.


If you're doing, or thinking of doing bing dev, I think these snippets might come in real handy...
