[Solved] Writer: modify outline numbering parameters

Hello forum,

I would like to set parameters by macro for outline numbering.
If I inspect a document with MRI, I found NumberingRules property.
But this interface is in read only.
How can I proceed?

NumberingLevel, NumberingRules etc set at the paragraph level.

Thanks for the clue.

But I don't see some parameters in ParagraphProperties.

For example, how can I reach Separator's fields to have "Lesson" and "Study notes"?

Based on the code I found in Listing 7.64 of Andrew Pitonyak's document "Useful Macro Information", the following appears to work.

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Sub CheckOutLine()
Dim i%, j%
Dim oRules
Dim oRule()
Dim oProp
oRules = ThisComponent.getChapterNumberingRules()
For i = 0 To oRules.getCount() - 1
   oRule() = oRules.getByIndex(i)
REM I do not set the following:
REM Adjust, LeftMargin,
REM SymbolTextDistance, FirstLineOffset
   For j = LBound(oRule()) To Ubound(oRule())
      REM oProp is only a copy of the property.
      REM You must assign the property back into the array.
      oProp = oRule(j)
      Select Case oProp.Name
      Case "HeadingStyleName"
         'oProp.Value = sNames(i)
      Case "NumberingType"
         'oProp.Value = com.sun.star.style.NumberingType.ARABIC
      Case "ParentNumbering"
         'oProp.Value = i + 1
      Case "Prefix"
         oProp.Value = "Lesson"
      Case "Suffix"
         oProp.Value = "Study Notes"
      Case "StartWith"
         oProp.Value = 8
      End Select
      oRule(j) = oProp
   Next
oRules.replaceByIndex(i, oRule())
Next
End Sub
