Build TOC based on custom styles

I have been trying Aspose.Words for java to add a TOC with Custom Style. The custom style is built as a copy of the standard Heading Styles as below:

Style newStyle;
for(int i=1;i<=9;i++){
newStyle = doc.getStyles().addCopy(doc.getStyles().get("Heading "+i));
newStyle = doc.getStyles().addCopy(doc.getStyles().get("Heading "+i));

But my TOC shows all the standard styles and custom styles also in the document.
Tried with builder.insertTableOfContents("\o “1-9” \t “SecTitle1” “); and
builder.insertTableOfContents(”\h \z \t “SecTitle1,1” ");

Please let me know how do I ensure the TOC is built only for custom styles SecTitle1 - SecTitle9 and ClauseTitle1 - ClauseTitle9 and no heading styles are displayed in the TOC.



Thanks for your inquiry. You need to insert custom styles in the TOC field codes. The field codes should be like { TOC \h \z \t “Style1,1,Style2,2” }. The “Style 1” and “Style 2” are custom styles.

If you face any issue, please attach the following resources here for testing:

  • Your input Word document.
