Hi Patrick,
This is how my toc appears:
Part 1 first part 11
(1) Chapter one 12 (2) Chapter two 13 (3) Chapter three 14
(4) Chapter four 15 (5) Chapter five 16
Part 2 second part 21
(1) Chapter one 22 (2) Chapter two 23 (3) Chapter three 24
(4) Chapter four 25 (5) Chapter five 26
Part 3 Third part 31
(1) Chapter one 32 (2) Chapter two 33 (3) Chapter three 34
(4) Chapter four 35 (5) Chapter five 36
I want to control the distance for instance in the second and third line to
the right margin (This means chapters indeed = Line5,6,8,9 too). This could
result in the fact that my chapters will appear on 3 lines instead of 2
here.

To my knowledge there is no parameter such as distance to change this.
Here distance changes only the distance between chapter elements for
instance: the element (1) Chapter one 12 and the element Chapter two 13
(3). This how alternative d works (with elements).

This is how the result i want could be:
Part 1 first part11
(1) Chapter one 12 (2) Chapter two 13 (3) Chapter
three 14 (4) Chapter four 15 (5) Chapter five 16
Part 2 second part   21
(1) Chapter one 22 (2) Chapter two 23 (3) Chapter
three 24 (4) Chapter four 25 (5) Chapter five 26
Part 3 Third part  31
(1) Chapter one 32 (2) Chapter two 33 (3) Chapter
three 34 (4) Chapter four 35 (5) Chapter five 36
Thanks.
Dirar.

An option is to use the narrower mechanism; unfortunately abc placement does not
listen that so we need a patch (not sure if this is not breaking other things).

Wha
Thanks a lot to you all.
Hans,
I have tried:
\startnarrower[4*right] \placecontent \stopnarrower \blank[4*big]
This is exactly what i meant.
Unfortunately, there is a problem, which is in my opinion not related to
TOC, but to Tex (or Context, you'll be able to tell).

i get a result like this:
Part 1 First part 11
(1) Chapter one 12 (2) Chapter two 13 (3) Chapter
^^
three 14 (4) Chapter four 15 (5) Chapter
five 16
Part 2 Second part 21
(1) Chapter one 22 (2) Chapter two 23 (3)
Chapter
three 24 (4) Chapter four 25 (5) Chapter
five 26
Part 3 Third part 31
(1) Chapter one 32 (2) Chapter two 33 (3)
Chapter
three 34 (4) Chapter four 35 (5) Chapter
five 36
Why does Context cut all the lines at the right place, and not that second
one ?

I got the same error the other day when i was writing a letter.
I had all the paragraphs aligned to the right at the same distance, but the
last line of my document  didnt align with them, and i got a text like this:

ks dsdjkl fq sqfl  sdlkj f dsld sfjds
s ds sdjklf gfi lkdsjf ig lkdsjf oi fls
sjfskl id fsdl sdi  dsjfu fjs fl lùgdd
ks dsdjkl fq sqfl  sdlkj f dsld sfjds
s ds sdjklf gfi lkdsjf ig lkdsjf oi fls
sjfskl id fsdl sdi  dsjfu fjs fl lùgdd
ks dsdjkl fq sqfl  sdlkj f dsld sfjds
s ds sdjklf gfi lkdsjf ig lkdsjf oi fls
sjfskl id fsdl sdi  dsjfu fjs fl lùgdd
sdksjf dsjklf ds fsdkl fs fkldsf dj dslf dsjk fd.
How can i control this ?
Dirar.

no solution to this problem.

You could also conclude from the lack of answers that nobody feels to
make a working example of what you wanted to achieve.

You (and others, of course) can increase the chance of someone looking
into your problem by creating a complete and minimal example of what
you tried. It is of course not a guarantee to an answer, but let's say
the least thing that a person seeking help should do.

It is absolutely no use to publish only a few lines in case of a
problem. What the problem-solvers want is code that they can cut and
paste to their editor and run it. Then they look at the output and
then at the code and sometimes they know where the problem is. One
thing that a problem-solver will not want to do is fill in the
missing parts of posted code like in a high school exam.

I don't try to be smart here, it is just the fact how the community
works.

Hello Dirar,

Great idea, i now have a working sample (What i want is to control the
right margin distance for both parts and chapters - Here i can control
only the left margin distance which is 1.7cm for chapters)

Where exactly do you want to control the distance? In the list?

You know about the distance=... parameter?

\setuplist
[chapter]
[alternative=d,
margin=1.7cm,
distance=2cm,
left=(,
right=),
pagestyle=slanted,
depth=2cm,
before=\blank,
after=\blank]
