Aha, sounds like the two questions from your previous mail are for the
ToC object which is created from the API, not via the UI. If you insert
the ToC on the UI, it's automatically updated after insertion.

5.3 is quite old, almost EOL; to discuss problems on this dev list, the
best is if you first try your problem on master (towards 6.1) first.

If you know what are the properties of the ToC object (does it only
contain Heading 1 paragraphs? Or also Heading 2? etc), then just
querying the outline numbering property ("OutlineLevel" is the UNO
property name) of the paragraph should work. Or check if it has a
RefHeading bookmark (see my previous mail) if that works better for you.
