Importing listing nodes with destination numbering

Hi,

I am trying to insert a node form one document to another. The nodes are part of list items.
I want to retain the destination numbering style and sequence while importing the node form source to destination document.
Please find attached doc1.doc, doc2.doc and result.doc . Using the follwing code I get the result.doc the listing order is not maintained. Please can you suggest how to take care of the same.

Thanks for your inquiry. You can try using the following code:

public static void buildDocument(List<String> paras) throws Exception

{

Document doc = new Document();

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Create a style with a list asociated with it.

Style listStyle = doc.getStyles().add(StyleType.PARAGRAPH, "myStyle");

listStyle.getFont().setSize(14);

list.getListLevels().get(0).getFont().setSize(14);

list.getListLevels().get(0).getFont().setColor(Color.BLACK);

list.getListLevels().get(0).setNumberStyle(NumberStyle.ARABIC);

list.getListLevels().get(0).setNumberFormat("\u0000)");

// asociate a list with style.

listStyle.getListFormat().setList(list);

builder.startBookmark("start_doc");

builder.getFont().setSize(12);

builder.getFont().setBold(false);

builder.getFont().setColor(Color.GRAY);

builder.writeln("Do not delete this line");

builder.getFont().clearFormatting();

if (paras != null && !paras.isEmpty())

{

for (String section : paras)

{

builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyle(listStyle);

builder.startBookmark("sec_" + i);

Hi

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your inquiry. This works fine with documents generate on my side, but does not work with your documents. Could you please create a simple code that will show me how you generate these documents? I will check the code and provide you more information.

Best regards,

Hi,

Please find attached src and ouput.doc

Thanks and Regards,
Tarul

Hi

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thank you for additional information. The problem occurs because you are still use builder.getListFormat().applyNumberDefault(); and builder.getListFormat().removeNumbers();. Please take a look at the code example I provided and note I do not use these methods. Instead, I apply numbering by specifying paragraph style.

Please let me know if you need more assistance, I will e glad to help you.

Best regards.


Hi,

I tried removing builder.getListFormat().applyNumberDefault(); and builder.getListFormat().removeNumbers(); but still gave me the same output. It seems there is a problem in using

com.aspose.words.List list = doc.getLists().get(0);
builder.getListFormat().setList(list);


in the method.
I have multilevel list elements. Please suggest how to handle it.

Please find attached documents and src
DocumentUtil.txt – source
createdSubDoc.doc – document created using src code
subDoc.doc – document from where list nodes are imported
op.doc – output document after importing list nodes

Thanks in advance.

Hi

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your inquiry. Please try creating a list and style from scratch, just as I suggested in my code example:

// Create a style with a list asociated with it.

Style listStyle = doc.getStyles().add(StyleType.PARAGRAPH, "myStyle");

listStyle.getFont().setSize(14);

listStyle.getFont().setBold(true);

listStyle.getFont().setColor(Color.BLACK);

// Create a list.

com.aspose.words.List list = doc.getLists().add(ListTemplate.NUMBER_ARABIC_DOT);

list.getListLevels().get(0).getFont().setBold(true);

list.getListLevels().get(0).getFont().setSize(14);

list.getListLevels().get(0).getFont().setColor(Color.BLACK);

list.getListLevels().get(0).setNumberStyle(NumberStyle.ARABIC);

list.getListLevels().get(0).setNumberFormat("\u0000)");

// asociate a list with style.

listStyle.getListFormat().setList(list);

Also in your code you still set list instead of setting style as I suggested. Here is line of your code:

builder.getListFormat().setList(list);

Here is what I suggested:

builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyle(listStyle);

Best regards,

Hi Alexey,

Thanks alot… its working :slight_smile:

Warm Regards,
Tarul

Hi Tarul,

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

It is perfect that you managed to resolve the problem. Please feel free to ask in case of any issues, I will be glad to help you.

Best regards,

Hi Alexey,

I am trying to insert list items form MS Word Application in my document (Output.doc) which I have created using Aspose.
Now when I do not apply the style to the list (i.e. using list.getListLevels().get(0).setLinkedStyle(listStyleLevel1):wink: and i press enter in the document after a list element the style formatting is lost.
Even if I apply the style to the list (i.e. using list.getListLevels().get(0).setLinkedStyle(listStyleLevel1):wink: that is not properly applied. It loses its format in the level 2.
And if I apply it manually through MS Word as in the second document (Output_formatted.doc) the level is not identified properly in the document.

Can you please explain how to handle this. I have to provide inserting list element both through the document as well as from the code.

Please find attached code and document.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Tarul

And also the doucment is created in two parts and inserted after a node. Let me know if this may be a problem.

Thanks in advance.

Tarul

Hi

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thank you for additional information. You do not need to apply LinkedStyle of list level. What I suggested is applying paragraph style. I simplified code to show you the techniques you should use. Here are steps you should follow:

1. Create a list.

2. Configure each level of the list is necessary.

3. Create a paragraph style.

4. Associate the created list with the style.

5. Set the created style to the paragraph that should be a list item.

6. If you need to increase level you should just call getListFormat().listOutdent();

Here is simple code that demonstrates the technique.

// Create a document and docuemnt builder.

Document doc = new Document();

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Create a list.

com.aspose.words.List list = doc.getLists().add(ListTemplate.NUMBER_ARABIC_DOT);

// Configure list if necessary

// Configure first level.

list.getListLevels().get(0).setNumberStyle(NumberStyle.ARABIC);

list.getListLevels().get(0).setNumberFormat("\u0000.");

// Configure second level

list.getListLevels().get(1).setNumberStyle(NumberStyle.ARABIC);

list.getListLevels().get(1).setNumberFormat("\u0000.\u0001.");

// Configure next levels if neccessary

// ........................................

// Create a style with a list asociated with it.

Style listStyle = doc.getStyles().add(StyleType.PARAGRAPH, "myStyle");

// Asociate a list with style.

listStyle.getListFormat().setList(list);

// Apply the list to the current paragraph.

builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyle(listStyle);

builder.writeln("item 1");

// Incerease level.

builder.getListFormat().listIndent();

builder.writeln("item 1.1");

builder.writeln("item 1.2");

builder.writeln("item 1.3");

// Decrease level

builder.getListFormat().listOutdent();

builder.writeln("item 2");

// Disable numbering.

builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyleIdentifier(StyleIdentifier.NORMAL);

// Save output.

doc.save("C:\\Temp\\out.doc");

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Hi Alexey,

As you would find in my code i have already applied the paragaraph formatting to the list.
I have different paragraph formatting for different levels.

The formatting is not maintained whn the document is being edited in MS Word application. Please suggest how to solve this.

Hi

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your request. You can do the same using multiple styles linked to the same list. Please see the following code example:

// Create a document and docuemnt builder.

Document doc = new Document();

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Create a list.

com.aspose.words.List list = doc.getLists().add(ListTemplate.NUMBER_ARABIC_DOT);

// Configure list if necessary

// Configure first level.

list.getListLevels().get(0).setNumberStyle(NumberStyle.ARABIC);

list.getListLevels().get(0).setNumberFormat("\u0000.");

// Configure second level

list.getListLevels().get(1).setNumberStyle(NumberStyle.ARABIC);

list.getListLevels().get(1).setNumberFormat("\u0000.\u0001.");

// Configure next levels if neccessary

// ........................................

// First level styel.

// Create a style with a list asociated with it.

Style firstLevelStyel = doc.getStyles().add(StyleType.PARAGRAPH, "FirstLevel");

// Asociate a list with style.

firstLevelStyel.getListFormat().setList(list);

firstLevelStyel.getListFormat().setListLevelNumber(0);

firstLevelStyel.getFont().setSize(20);

// Second level styel.

Style secondLevelStyel = doc.getStyles().add(StyleType.PARAGRAPH, "SecondLevel");

secondLevelStyel.getListFormat().setList(list);

secondLevelStyel.getListFormat().setListLevelNumber(1);

// Apply the list to the current paragraph.

builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyle(firstLevelStyel);

builder.writeln("item 1");

// Incerease level.

builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyle(secondLevelStyel);

builder.writeln("item 1.1");

builder.writeln("item 1.2");

builder.writeln("item 1.3");

// Decrease level

builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyle(firstLevelStyel);

builder.writeln("item 2");

// Disable numbering.

builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyleIdentifier(StyleIdentifier.NORMAL);

// Save output.

doc.save("C:\\Temp\\out.doc");

Hope this helps.
