Do you want to randomize the items in an array with VB.net? Add these 2 functions below to your code to get it working. The reason there’s 2 functions you must add is because the first function is using the second function to make it all work.
To use it, you just type: Shuffle(YourArray, 5)
The number is just how many times it’s going to shuffle the array, you can use whatever you want here.
Here is the code for the 2 functions:
Public Function Shuffle(ByRef arrayToBeShuffled As Array, ByVal numberOfTimesToShuffle As Integer) Dim rndPosition As New Random(DateTime.Now.Millisecond) For i As Integer = 1 To numberOfTimesToShuffle For i2 As Integer = 1 To arrayToBeShuffled.Length Swap(arrayToBeShuffled(rndPosition.Next(0, arrayToBeShuffled.Length)), arrayToBeShuffled(rndPosition.Next(0, arrayToBeShuffled.Length))) Next i2 Next i Return ("") End Function Public Function Swap(ByRef arg1 As Object, ByRef arg2 As Object) Dim strTemp As String strTemp = arg1 arg1 = arg2 arg2 = strTemp Return ("") End Function
