I am trying to create a List of Tables and List of Figures that looks like my Table of Contents. My Table of Contents uses a side hide for the Chapter Number and the Chapter name and Heading titles in the column.
I want the List of Figures and List of Tables to use the Figure Number and the Table Number in the Side Head of their respective documents, and the Figure Captions and Table Captions in the column.
However, In the Table of Contents the <$chapnum> building block is used to create the Chapter number in the Side Head. How can I do this for the Figure and Table lists? I am including images of what I would like generated files to look like.
I've checked one of my Lists of figures, and the building blocks are
<$paranum> <$paratext> <$pagenum>
The definition for the figure caption style is
Hope this will at least get you started with your folio-by-chapter numbering for figures!
Thank you so much. This has really been a problem, because when I regenerate the book the Figure and Table numbers in the sidehead go away. I am hoping for a better solution. I will try your idea.

Are the figure numbers separate paragraphs from the the figure titles (same with table numbers and table titles), like your chapter numbers and chapter titles are? To pull them out as side-head paras, they will need to be.
They may print on the same line in the chapters using a run in head, but they'll need to be separate paragraphs, i.e.,
Figure 3.2¶ VLP-16 xxxxxxxxx¶
