How to: Create Numbered List in Code

To create a numbered list in code, perform the following steps.

  1. Add a new AbstractNumberingList instance to the Document.AbstractNumberingLists collection.
  2. Specify a NumberingListBase.NumberingType property, so that it is equal to the NumberingType.MultiLevel value.
  3. For each list level, specify the paragraph characteristics using the ListLevel.ParagraphProperties property. Set the left indentation so that each level has a different offset from the left. Specify a hanging first line and set the first line indent value to provide enough space for a number that precedes the text.
  4. Set the ListLevelProperties.Start value that is the number from which to start the list.
  5. Specify a format used to display a number via the ListLevelProperties.DisplayFormatString property.
  6. Use the Add method of the collection of lists in the document (accessible via the Document.NumberingLists property) to add a list definition to the document. The parameter is the index of an abstract numbering list created previously. The Add method creates a pattern that can be applied to a paragraph so that the paragraph looks like a list item.
  7. To include a paragraph in a list, set the Paragraph.ListIndex property of a paragraph to the index of a list in the document and specify the Paragraph.ListLevel property.
