// Enumerate and list all the styles that a document created using Aspose.Words contains by default.
using (IEnumerator<Style> stylesEnum = doc.Styles.GetEnumerator())
    while (stylesEnum.MoveNext())
        Style curStyle = stylesEnum.Current;
        Console.WriteLine($"Style name:\t\"{curStyle.Name}\", of type \"{curStyle.Type}\"");
        Console.WriteLine($"\tSubsequent style:\t{curStyle.NextParagraphStyleName}");
        Console.WriteLine($"\tIs heading:\t\t\t{curStyle.IsHeading}");

Shows how to create and use a paragraph style with list formatting.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Create a custom paragraph style.
Style style = doc.Styles.Add(StyleType.Paragraph, "MyStyle1");
style.Font.Size = 24;
style.Font.Name = "Verdana";
style.ParagraphFormat.SpaceAfter = 12;

// Create a list and make sure the paragraphs that use this style will use this list.
style.ListFormat.List = doc.Lists.Add(ListTemplate.BulletDefault);
style.ListFormat.ListLevelNumber = 0;

// Apply the paragraph style to the document builder's current paragraph, and then add some text.
builder.ParagraphFormat.Style = style;
builder.Writeln("Hello World: MyStyle1, bulleted list.");

// Change the document builder's style to one that has no list formatting and write another paragraph.
builder.ParagraphFormat.Style = doc.Styles["Normal"];
builder.Writeln("Hello World: Normal.");

builder.Document.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Styles.ParagraphStyleBulletedList.docx");
