I have a Component which contains category keywords as a drop down field. Editors can choose the desired keyword from the drop down. Following is the component source:

<Filter xmlns="uuid:ceca6b4d-5ffa-4012-ab77-2b6c9fdb0ab0">
           <Language_Name xlink:href="tcm:201-24156-1024" xlink:title="English" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">English</Language_Name>
           <Language_Name xlink:href="tcm:201-24183-1024" xlink:title="Arabic" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">Arabic</Language_Name>

In DWT I want to read TCM ID of the keyword. It seems I need to write a C# Template Building Block.

Is there any code reference available which will help me to start my C# TBB?

Is there any Tridion extension which will give me the TCM ID?

You just need to read your component with the correct ReadOptions. See: How to Get Keyword from Metadata or Item XML Using Core Service and Getting additional keyword information from item Xml?
