How to create a nested numbered list and apply it to the current paragraph without using document builder object

Hi,

Using Aspose.Net.Words, I want to create a numbered list as below without using document builder object.

A nested list:

1. New York
1.1 Manhattan
2. Rome
2.1 Trastevere
2.2 Campidoglio


Below is my code for the same but it does not seem working. Please help.


Document doc = new Document();
doc.RemoveAllChildren();

Section section = new Section(doc);
doc.AppendChild(section);

// Lets set some properties for the section.
section.PageSetup.SectionStart = SectionStart.NewPage;
section.PageSetup.PaperSize = PaperSize.Letter;

Body body = new Body(doc);
section.AppendChild(body);

Paragraph para = new Paragraph(doc);
body.AppendChild(para);

Run run = new Run(doc);
run.Text = “A nested list :”;
para.AppendChild(run);

// Apply numbering to styles.
List list = doc.Lists.Add(ListTemplate.NumberArabicDot);

list.ListLevels[0].NumberFormat = “\x0000.”;

list.ListLevels[0].NumberStyle = NumberStyle.Arabic;

list.ListLevels[1].NumberFormat = “\x0000.\x0001.”;

list.ListLevels[1].NumberStyle = NumberStyle.Arabic;

list.ListLevels[2].NumberFormat = “\x0000.\x0001.\x0002.”;

list.ListLevels[2].NumberStyle = NumberStyle.Arabic;


// para.ListFormat.ApplyNumberDefault();
para.ListFormat.List = list;
para.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber = 0;

run = new Run(doc);
run.Text = ControlChar.LineBreak + “New York”;
para.AppendChild(run);

para.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber = 1;
para.ListFormat.ListIndent();

run = new Run(doc);
run.Text = ControlChar.LineBreak + “Manhattan”;
para.AppendChild(run);

para.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber = 0;
para.ListFormat.ListOutdent();

run = new Run(doc);
run.Text = ControlChar.LineBreak + “Rome”;
para.AppendChild(run);

para.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber = 1;
para.ListFormat.ListIndent();

run = new Run(doc);
run.Text = ControlChar.LineBreak + “Trastevere”;
para.AppendChild(run);

run = new Run(doc);
run.Text = ControlChar.LineBreak + “Campidoglio”;
para.AppendChild(run);

// Save the document.
doc.Save(DataDir + “Section.CreateFromScratch Out.doc”);


Thanks,

Hi Pradeep,

Thanks for your inquiry. A paragraph in a Microsoft Word document can be bulleted or numbered. When a paragraph is bulleted or numbered, it is said that list formatting is applied to the paragraph.

Please use the following code example to achieve your requirements.


Document
doc = new Document();

doc.RemoveAllChildren();

Section section = new Section(doc);

doc.AppendChild(section);

// Lets set some properties for the section.

section.PageSetup.SectionStart = SectionStart.NewPage;

section.PageSetup.PaperSize = PaperSize.Letter;

Body body = new Body(doc);

section.AppendChild(body);

Paragraph para = new Paragraph(doc);

body.AppendChild(para);

Run run = new Run(doc);

run.Text = "A nested list :";

para.AppendChild(run);

// Apply numbering to styles.

List list = doc.Lists.Add(ListTemplate.NumberArabicDot);

list.ListLevels[0].NumberFormat = "\x0000";

list.ListLevels[0].NumberStyle = NumberStyle.Arabic;

list.ListLevels[1].NumberFormat = "\x0000.\x0001";

list.ListLevels[1].NumberStyle = NumberStyle.Arabic;

list.ListLevels[2].NumberFormat = "\x0000.\x0001.\x0002";

list.ListLevels[2].NumberStyle = NumberStyle.Arabic;

// para.ListFormat.ApplyNumberDefault();

para.ListFormat.List = list;

//para.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber = 0;

para = new Paragraph(doc);

body.AppendChild(para);

para.ListFormat.List = list;

run = new Run(doc);

run.Text = "New York";

para.AppendChild(run);

//para.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber = 1;

para.ListFormat.ListIndent();

para = new Paragraph(doc);

body.AppendChild(para);

para.ListFormat.List = list;

run = new Run(doc);

run.Text = "Manhattan";

para.AppendChild(run);

//para.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber = 0;

para.ListFormat.ListOutdent();

para = new Paragraph(doc);

body.AppendChild(para);

para.ListFormat.List = list;

run = new Run(doc);

run.Text = "Rome";

para.AppendChild(run);

//para.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber = 1;

para.ListFormat.ListIndent();

para = new Paragraph(doc);

body.AppendChild(para);

para.ListFormat.List = list;

run = new Run(doc);

run.Text = "Trastevere";

para.AppendChild(run);

para = new Paragraph(doc);

body.AppendChild(para);

para.ListFormat.List = list;

run = new Run(doc);

run.Text = "Campidoglio";

para.AppendChild(run);

// Save the document.

doc.Save(MyDir + "Section.CreateFromScratch Out.doc");
