    public class Style 
    extends java.lang.Object

Represents a single built-in or user-defined style.

Example:

Shows how to change the font formatting of all styles in a document.
Document doc = new Document();
for (Style style : doc.getStyles())
{
    if (style.getFont() != null)
    {
        style.getFont().clearFormatting();
        style.getFont().setSize(20);
        style.getFont().setName("Arial");
    }
}

Example:

Shows how to create and use a paragraph style with list formatting.
Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Create a paragraph style and specify some formatting for it.
Style style = doc.getStyles().add(StyleType.PARAGRAPH, "MyStyle1");
style.getFont().setSize(24);
style.getFont().setName("Verdana");
style.getParagraphFormat().setSpaceAfter(12);

// Create a list and make sure the paragraphs that use this style will use this list.
style.getListFormat().setList(doc.getLists().add(ListTemplate.BULLET_DEFAULT));
style.getListFormat().setListLevelNumber(0);

// Apply the paragraph style to the current paragraph in the document and add some text.
builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyle(style);
builder.writeln("Hello World: MyStyle1, bulleted.");

// Change to a paragraph style that has no list formatting.
builder.getParagraphFormat().setStyle(doc.getStyles().get("Normal"));
builder.writeln("Hello World: Normal.");

builder.getDocument().save(getMyDir() + "\\Artifacts\\Lists.ParagraphStyleBulleted.doc");

            if (para.getParagraphFormat().getStyle().getStyleIdentifier() >= StyleIdentifier.TOC_1 && para.getParagraphFormat().getStyle().getStyleIdentifier() <= StyleIdentifier.TOC_9)
            {

                para.getParagraphFormat().getTabStops().removeByPosition(tab.getPosition());
                // Insert a new tab using the same properties but at a modified position.
                // We could also change the separators used (dots) by passing a different Leader type
                para.getParagraphFormat().getTabStops().add(tab.getPosition() - 50, tab.getAlignment(), tab.getLeader());

      • remove

        public void remove()
        Removes the specified style from the document. Style removal has following effects on the document model:
        • All references to the style are removed from corresponding paragraphs, runs and tables.

        • If style to be deleted has a linked style, then both of these are deleted.

        Example:

        Shows how to pick a style that is defined in the document and remove it.
        Document doc = new Document();
        doc.getStyles().get("Normal").remove();
