You can use DocumentBuilder.InsertTableOfContents method to insert a TOC (table of contents) field into the document. For example, after creating a table of contents, the following field is inserted into the document: { TOC \o “1-3” \h \z \u }. You can copy \o “1-3” \h \z \u and use it as the switches parameter.

Following code example shows how to insert a Table of contents (TOC) into a document using heading styles as entries.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Insert a table of contents at the beginning of the document,
// and set it to pick up paragraphs with headings of levels 1 to 3 and entries to act like hyperlinks
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
// The heading levels we use below will affect the list levels in which these items will appear in the TOC,
// and only levels 1-3 will be picked up by our TOC due to its settings
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 and save
doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "DocumentBuilder.InsertToc.docx");
