How to insert CheckBox instead of list bullets

I generate a word document using .insertHtml() method.

After inserting all elements I need to go through each list, remove bullets and insert checkboxs in front of the text. It must look like bullets, but it must be checkboxes.

I do like this…

foreach (List list in doc.Lists)
foreach (ListLevel level in list.ListLevels)
level.NumberFormat = “”; //Cleans bullets, maybe there is better solution?
… here I need to insert checkbox, but I do not know how…

How to insert CheckBox instead of list bullets?
Method level.NumberStyle = NumberStyle.None; does not remove bullets. Is it right?


Thank you for your interest in Aspose.Words. Could you please attach your input and expected output documents here for testing? I will check them and provide you more information.

Best regards,

Here is an example how it must look.

p.s. I am a newbie here. I posted this question in Aspose.Priority.Support area also. You can move this thread there.


Thank you for additional information. In this case you can try suing the code like the following:

Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\in.doc");

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Get collection of Paragraph nodes.

NodeCollection paragraphs = doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Paragraph, true);

// Loop throught all Paragraphs.

foreach (Paragraph par in paragraphs)


if (par.IsListItem && (par.HasChildNodes || !par.IsEndOfSection))


//Get label of list item

string label = par.ListLabel.LabelString + "\t";

//Create run that will represent label in the document

Run labelRun = new Run(doc, label);

//We should import paragraph indents

double leftIndent = par.ListFormat.ListLevel.NumberPosition;

//Remove list label


//Insert label at the begining of paragraph

par.ChildNodes.Insert(0, labelRun);


//Insert CheckBox at the begining of paragraph

builder.InsertCheckBox("chkYes", false, 11);

par.ParagraphFormat.LeftIndent = leftIndent;




Best regards,

Thank you for quick response! It actually works! :slight_smile:
