NuGet Package: DevExpress.RichEdit.Core


public abstract int OutlineLevel { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

An integer specifying the level number, or null to indicate a mix of values.


Outline levels are used to build a table of contents without changing the appearance of your text.

When a document is exported to HTML with default settings, the outline level specifies the tag in which the paragraph is enclosed. Outline levels from1 to 6 result in H1 - H6 tags respectively; paragraphs with outline levels higher than 6 are exported as text enclosed in a P tag. You can set the HtmlDocumentExporterOptions.IgnoreParagraphOutlineLevel option to true to export all paragraphs using only <P> tags, disregarding their outline levels.
