How to Create TOC(Table of Contents) in MsWord in .NET


I want to Create TOC using Aspose in .NET, can you help with example. In example please create the TOC and corresponding link, means on click of Introduction TOC it should move to Introduction link on the page. Thanks in advance.


Hi Raviranjan,

Thanks for your interest in Aspose.Words. Please refer to the following section of the documentation which outlines DocumentBuilder.InsertTableOfContents Method:

Also, the following code demonstrates how to insert a Table of contents (TOC) into a document using heading styles as entries.

// Use a blank document
Document doc = new Document();
// Create a document builder to insert content with into document.
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Insert a table of contents at the beginning of the document.
builder.InsertTableOfContents("\\o \"1-3\" \\h \\z \\u");

// Start the actual document content on the second page.

// Build a document with complex structure by applying different heading styles thus creating TOC entries.
builder.ParagraphFormat.StyleIdentifier = StyleIdentifier.Heading1;
builder.Writeln("Heading 1");

builder.ParagraphFormat.StyleIdentifier = StyleIdentifier.Heading2;

builder.Writeln("Heading 1.1");
builder.Writeln("Heading 1.2");

builder.ParagraphFormat.StyleIdentifier = StyleIdentifier.Heading1;
builder.Writeln("Heading 2");
builder.Writeln("Heading 3");

builder.ParagraphFormat.StyleIdentifier = StyleIdentifier.Heading2;
builder.Writeln("Heading 3.1");

builder.ParagraphFormat.StyleIdentifier = StyleIdentifier.Heading3;
builder.Writeln("Heading 3.1.1");
builder.Writeln("Heading 3.1.2");
builder.Writeln("Heading 3.1.3");

builder.ParagraphFormat.StyleIdentifier = StyleIdentifier.Heading2;
builder.Writeln("Heading 3.2");
builder.Writeln("Heading 3.3");

// Call the method below to update the TOC.

I hope, this helps.

Best regards,
