Document document = new Document();
            
Page page = new Page();
            
OrderedList list = new OrderedList(50, 50, 300, 500);
            
list.ListItemTopMargin = 5;
list.ListItemBottomMargin = 5;
list.BulletPrefix = "(";
list.BulletSuffix = ")";
list.TextColor = RgbColor.BlueViolet;
            
ListItem item1 = list.Items.Add("List item 1");
item1.Underline = true;
ListItem item2 = list.Items.Add("List item 2");
item2.Underline = true;
ListItem item3 = list.Items.Add("List item 3");
item3.Underline = true;
ListItem item4 = list.Items.Add("List item 4");
item4.Underline = true;
            
OrderedSubList subList1 = item1.SubLists.AddOrderedSubList(NumberingStyle.RomanUpperCase);
subList1.TextColor = RgbColor.HotPink;
ListItem item5 = subList1.Items.Add("Sub-list item 1");
ListItem item6 = subList1.Items.Add("Sub-list item 2");
            
OrderedSubList subList2 = item5.SubLists.AddOrderedSubList(NumberingStyle.AlphabeticLowerCase);
subList2.TextColor = RgbColor.DarkGoldenRod;
ListItem item7 = subList2.Items.Add("Second level sub-list item 1");
ListItem item8 = subList2.Items.Add("Second level sub-list item 2");
            
page.Elements.Add(list);
