WordsProcessing: Table Of Contents - TOC field
This feature includes: table of figure, table of tables etc.

TOC field contains PageRef fields inside it. To update it, we will need pagination (layout) support and PageRef fields implementation. Also TOC update can be influenced by TC fields presence in the document.

Implement export to PDF.

Hello Bob,

All fields should be preserved on import/export, in the case when the field is not supported through CustomCodeField. So you should be able to import, makes changes and export preserving the TOC field. If you observe a case in which the TOC field is not preserved on import/export, could you open a support ticket and send us a sample document, so we can investigate in on our side?

Otherwise, what's not supported is the update of the field - it should detect all paragraphs with Heading styles and other elements, add hidden bookmarks where needed, add hyperlink fields and PAGEREF fields to the field results and evaluate the page number on which the bookmarks referenced by PAGEREF fields will be positioned. This task requires to perform full text layout for the document, which is currently supported only partially during export to PDF.

Regards,
Boby

Not good.  My users define contents tables using Word.  I load the document, make changes, and I need to update the ToC in Word.  Why can I not see the ToC in Word?

Hi all,

Indeed, the feature is important and is with relatively high priority in our backlog but at this point is not scheduled due to the high complexity of the implementation and the amount of resources required for it. The reason behind this complexity is that RadWordsProcessing doesn't have any notion about UI, which is required to measure the document and arrange its elements in specific positions which can be later related to the number of the page in a TOC field entry. In other words, the implementation of this task requires implementing a layout mechanism for the contents of RadFlowDocument.

Please, continue following this item so we can send you notifications about status changes on it.
