Working with lists

Creating a simple list

Essential Presentation allows you to create simple and multi-level lists that make the content easier for reading. In PowerPoint, Presentation lists consists of the following types

  1. Numbered list
  2. Bulleted list
  3. Picture list

Numbered List

The following code example illustrates how to create a numbered list:

//Creates a new Presentation instance.
IPresentation pptxDoc = Presentation.Create();

//Adds a blank slide into the Presentation
ISlide slide = pptxDoc.Slides.Add(SlideLayoutType.Blank);

// Adds a textbox to hold the list
IShape textBoxShape = slide.AddTextBox(65, 140, 410, 270);

// Adds a new paragraph with the text in the left hand side textbox.
IParagraph paragraph = textBoxShape.TextBody.AddParagraph("AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company.");

//Sets the list type as Numbered
paragraph.ListFormat.Type = ListType.Numbered;

//Sets the numbered style (list numbering) as Arabic number following by period.
paragraph.ListFormat.NumberStyle = NumberedListStyle.ArabicPeriod;

//Sets the starting value as 1
paragraph.ListFormat.StartValue = 1;

//Sets the list level as 1
paragraph.IndentLevelNumber = 1;   

// Sets the hanging value
paragraph.FirstLineIndent = -20;         

// Sets the bullet character size. Here, 100 means 100% of its text. Possible values can range from 25 to 400.
paragraph.ListFormat.Size = 100;           

// Adds another paragraph with the text in the left hand side textbox.
paragraph = textBoxShape.TextBody.AddParagraph("The company manufactures and sells metal and composite bicycles to North American, European and Asian commercial markets.");

//Sets the list type as bulleted
paragraph.ListFormat.Type = ListType.Numbered;

//Sets the numbered style (list numbering) as Arabic number following by period.
paragraph.ListFormat.NumberStyle = NumberedListStyle.ArabicPeriod;

//Sets the list level as 1
paragraph.IndentLevelNumber = 1;

// Sets the hanging value
paragraph.FirstLineIndent = -20;                     

// Sets the bullet character size. Here, 100 means 100% of its text. Possible values can range from 25 to 400.
paragraph.ListFormat.Size = 100;

// Adds another paragraph with the text in the left hand side textbox.
paragraph = textBoxShape.TextBody.AddParagraph("While its base operation is located in Washington with 290 employees, several regional sales teams are located throughout their market base.");

//Sets the list type as bulleted
paragraph.ListFormat.Type = ListType.Numbered;

//Sets the numbered style (list numbering) as Arabic number following by period.
paragraph.ListFormat.NumberStyle = NumberedListStyle.ArabicPeriod;

//Sets the list level as 1

Creating a Multilevel List

You can create a multi-level list by setting the indentation levels. By default, the level begins at 0 and increments by 1 for each level. A list can be incremented or decremented from levels 0 to 8 as like Microsoft PowerPoint.

The following code example demonstrates how to create a multilevel list.

//Creates a new Presentation instance.
IPresentation pptxDoc = Presentation.Create();

//Adds the slide into the Presentation
ISlide slide = pptxDoc.Slides.Add(SlideLayoutType.Blank);

//Adds a textbox to hold the bulleted list
IShape textBoxShape = slide.AddTextBox(65, 140, 410, 250);

//Adds paragraph to the textbox
IParagraph paragraph = textBoxShape.TextBody.AddParagraph("AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company.");

//Sets the list type as Numbered list
paragraph.ListFormat.Type = ListType.Numbered;

//Sets the numbered style (list numbering) as Arabic number following by period.
paragraph.ListFormat.NumberStyle = NumberedListStyle.ArabicPeriod;

//Sets the starting value as 1
paragraph.ListFormat.StartValue = 1;

//Sets the list level as 1
paragraph.IndentLevelNumber = 1;

// Sets the hanging value
paragraph.FirstLineIndent = -20;         

//Adds paragraph to the textbox
paragraph = textBoxShape.TextBody.AddParagraph("The company manufactures and sells metal and composite bicycles to North American, European and Asian commercial markets.");

//Sets the list type as Numbered list
paragraph.ListFormat.Type = ListType.Numbered;

//Sets the numbered style (list numbering) as lower case alphabet following by period.
paragraph.ListFormat.NumberStyle = NumberedListStyle.AlphaLcPeriod;

//Sets the list level as 2
paragraph.IndentLevelNumber = 2;

// Sets the hanging value
paragraph.FirstLineIndent = -20;         

//Add paragraph to the textbox
paragraph = textBoxShape.TextBody.AddParagraph("While its base operation is located Washington with 290 employees, several regional sales teams are located throughout their market base.");

//Sets the list type as Numbered list
paragraph.ListFormat.Type = ListType.Numbered;

//Sets the numbered style (list numbering) as roman number lower casing following by period.
paragraph.ListFormat.NumberStyle = NumberedListStyle.RomanLcPeriod;

//Sets the list level as 3
paragraph.IndentLevelNumber = 3;

// Sets the hanging value
paragraph.FirstLineIndent = -20;         

//Adds paragraph to the textbox
paragraph = textBoxShape.TextBody.AddParagraph("These subcomponents are shipped to another location for final product assembly");

//Sets the list type as Numbered list
paragraph.ListFormat.Type = ListType.Numbered;
paragraph.ListFormat.NumberStyle = NumberedListStyle.ArabicPeriod;

//Sets the list level as 1
