Specifies whether to override the level’s starting number.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v22.2.Core.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.RichEdit.Core


void SetOverrideStart(
    bool value


Name Type Description
value Boolean

true, to override the level’s starting number; otherwise, false.


The code sample below shows how to create two lists based on the same pattern, but with different starting numbers.



// Create a new list pattern object
AbstractNumberingList list = document.AbstractNumberingLists.Add();

// Specify the list's type
list.NumberingType = NumberingType.Simple;

ListLevel level = list.Levels[0];
level.Start = 1;
level.NumberingFormat = NumberingFormat.UpperRoman;
level.DisplayFormatString = "{0}.";

// Create new list objects based on the specified pattern
NumberingList bulletedList = document.NumberingLists.Add(0);
NumberingList overrideList = document.NumberingLists.Add(0);

// Change the start number for the second list
overrideList.Levels[0].NewStart = 3;

// Add paragraphs from the target range to the first list
DocumentRange range = document.CreateRange(document.Paragraphs[0].Range.Start,document.Paragraphs[3].Range.End.ToInt() - document.Paragraphs[0].Range.Start.ToInt());
document.Paragraphs.AddParagraphsToList(range, bulletedList,0);

// Add paragraphs from the target range to the second list
DocumentRange range2 = document.CreateRange(document.Paragraphs[5].Range.Start, document.Paragraphs[7].Range.End.ToInt() - document.Paragraphs[4].Range.Start.ToInt());
document.Paragraphs.AddParagraphsToList(range2, overrideList, 0);
