TXTextControl.ListFormat lf = new TXTextControl.ListFormat();
lf.Type = TXTextControl.ListType.Numbered
lf.FirstNumber = 5;
lf.FontName = "Calibri";
lf.BulletCharacter = '>';
lf.BulletSize = 12;
lf.FormatCharacter = TXTextControl.ListFormatCharacter.Tab;

textControl1.Selection.ListFormat = lf;
Dim lf As TXTextControl.ListFormat = New TXTextControl.ListFormat()
lf.Type = TXTextControl.ListType.Numbered
lf.FirstNumber = 5
lf.FontName = "Calibri"
lf.BulletCharacter = ">"c
lf.BulletSize = 12
lf.FormatCharacter = TXTextControl.ListFormatCharacter.Tab

textControl1.Selection.ListFormat = lf


The property's default value is ListFormatCharacter.Tab.

The property returns its default value when the text selection contains multiple paragraphs with mixed formatting characters or when the text selection does not contain a bulleted or a numbered list. The Selection.IsCommonValueSelected method can be used to check for mixed attributes.
