Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, Aspose.Words mimics the same behavior as MS Word does.

You can achieve desired results by using following code:

Document doc = new Document("D:\\Temp\\TOC.docx");
doc.Styles[StyleIdentifier.Toc1].BaseStyleName = "Heading 8";
doc.Styles[StyleIdentifier.Toc1].ParagraphFormat.StyleIdentifier = StyleIdentifier.Heading8;
doc.Styles[StyleIdentifier.Toc1].Font.Color = Color.Red;

doc.UpdateFields();
doc.Save("D:\\Temp\\TOC_18.11.docx");

Hope, this helps.

Hi Mannan,

Thanks for the reply. Can you please give me the Java version of the code ?

doc.getStyles().getByStyleIdentifier(StyleIdentifier.TOC_1).getParagraphFormat().setStyleIdentifier(StyleIdentifier.HEADING_1);
doc.getStyles().getByStyleIdentifier(StyleIdentifier.TOC_1).getFont().setColor(Color.RED);
