# Multiple Function And Array Using Random Integer?

Aug 4, 2009

I've been asked to do the following using javascript:

-Create a function named randInt() with one parameter of "size". Declare a variable named "rNum" equal to a random integer between 1 and the value of the size variable. Return the value of the "rNum" varialbe from the function.

-Create a function named getQuote() with one parameter anemd "qNum". The function should create an array named mtQuotes with five quotes; there should be no quote for the array index "0". Return the value of the mtQuotes array for the qNum index.

- In the div element of "quotes" insert a script with the following commands: Declare a variable named "randValue" which is euqal to a random integer between 1 and 5 (use the randInt() function). Declare a variable named "quoteText" containing the quote whose array index value is equal to randValue. Write the value of quoteText to the web page.Here is what I have...it returns undefined.

Dec 18, 2010

I have an array and a button to select a random integer from the array, how do I make it so that it selects every integer once til all are selected, then it starts over again?For example, an array has these:

A
B

## Multiple Array And Random Numbers ?

Nov 10, 2010

I have a quick question with multiple array and random numbers. If i generate my random numbers in one array, how would i take a selection of those numbers and put them in another array?

Ex: array 1: 25, 34, 38, 40, 22, 49

Want to move numbers between 30 and 50 to another array.

array 2: 34, 38, 40, 49

Is it as simple as for loops and if statements setting the conditions? do i use a sorting method? (selection? bubble?)

## Prevent Repeating In A Random (Math.random) Array?

Aug 6, 2009

I've looked for a solution to this issue, but it seems like a little different scenario than other situations. I made a system for generating friend requests on Facebook. I have a grid that is 6 x 3, for a total of 18 cells. Each cell has a picture in it, and the picture is linked to the Facebook friend request page. My problem is that since each cell is populated at random from the array, I'm getting lots of repeats. For example, some picutures are in 5 cells, and some are in none. I'm trying to figure out how to make it so that once a picture is used once in the grid, it does not get used again in the same grid.I still want every cell filled at random on each page load, I just want to prevent the repeating.

Here's my current code:
<script type="text/javascript">
var vip_list=new Array(

## Integer Or Text 'document.write('integer')' To Variable In Another Script...

Jul 20, 2005

First script, 'xxx.js' returns value 'document.write('integer');
So in HTML:

<script language='javascript' src='xxx.js'></script>

will write ie. 123 on my page in browser.

Can I get this integer or text 'document.write('integer')' to variable in
another script? So it would be something like this:

<script landuage='javascript>
a=<script ... src='xxx.js'></script>;
a*=20;
document.write(a);
</script> ...

## Ask For Integer Then List Numbers To That Integer On Page!

Sep 13, 2006

I am trying to learn how to do this one thing with JavaScript and can't seem to find anything on the internet. I have learned about loops and arrays and some other useful stuff. I've been looking for 2 days straight. I have gotten close though.

I am trying to have a textbox on the page and a button below it. A statement above the textbox should ask the user to enter a positive integer and then click the button. When the button is clicked the results from 0 to that number should appear below the button. Should look like this

6
BUTTON1

1
2
3
4
5
6

I have been trying night and day for 2 days now and It's driving me insane.

## Shuffle Array Elements (3 To End Of Array) In Random Order

May 6, 2007

I'd like to reorganize the third, fourth, fifth and sixth, as well as any
elements thereafter in an array in random order:

var a = new Array('first','second','third','fourth','fifth','s ixth','etc')

In other words, the first, second and third element should remain in
position 0, 1 and 2, while the fourth, fifth and sixth, etc. should appear
in random order.

## JQuery :: Pass A Variable As An Integer To A Function?

May 16, 2010

Let's say I have this function: function add(x, y) { var add = x + y;

[Code]...

So let's say the value of select_first is "1", and value of select_second is also "1". But when they are passed to the add function, the returned value is 11 and not 2. So what I understood is that it took the values as strings instead of integers. What should I do so that select_first and select_second are integers instead of string?

## Random Words From Array In Hangman?

Jan 21, 2009

I am learning Javascript from this book I got, and I am trying to do one of the "challenges" in the Hangman example, and that is to add on more 8 letter words to it and have it select by random. I am assuming that it's asking me to do this with arrays, but I have no idea how to implement that on this while having it select randomly.

## Display X Random Values From Array?

May 7, 2011

I have an array containing 100 different values. How would I randomly pick 25 of them for display? For now I do: for (var i=0; i<markers.length && i<25; i++) {

html += markers[i].name + '<br />';
}

Which of course returns 25 values but always in the same order which is not what I want. PS. My array could also contain only 20 values, in which case I would like the function to display the 20 values randomly sorted.

## Select A Random Entry From An Array?

Aug 30, 2010

So, I am attempting to select a random entry from an array, and then make it so that particular entry will not be selected again until every entry has been selected. Basically, I don't want to see any of the same entries, until all of the entries in the array have been selected.

So if this were my array....

keywords =
[
"ppc",
"games",

[Code]....

since meta was selected a second time before everything had been selected once.

I would like to see something more like

meta, advertise, gaming,ppc, welcome, home, games, advertise, ppc, since this did not select any entry multiple times before every entry had been randomly selected.( the second loop started at the second "advertise" in case you didn't catch the differences.

But as you can see from the code that I have posted above, I do not know how to do this. I have seen examples where the entries that were randomly selected, were actually deleted from the array entirely but this is not what I want to do. I just want every entry to be selected once, and then for the process to be restarted.

box3 = obj.form.box3.checked; // add more if necessary
box4 = obj.form.box4.checked;
box5 = obj.form.box5.checked;

count = (box1 ? 1 : 0) + (box2 ? 1 : 0) + (box3 ? 1 : 0) + (box4 ? 1 : 0) + (box5 ? 1 : 0);

if (count > max) {

## Starting Image In Random Array?

May 15, 2010

I'm creating a tool which will who a random image every time I press a button, when the image is clicked it will open a new tab which will show a website. I can tell you I've succeeded in all this, but I was wondering if there is any way in which I can let my "generator" show 1 standard image at first, and if this is even possible never show that image after it has been showed. The image will explain that the you have to press the button to go to the next image.The Code:

<script language="JavaScript">
images = new Array(4);
images[0] = "<a href = 'URL' target='name' onclick='window.open ('URL')' ><img src='img1.jpg' alt='tag'></a>";

## Random Sentence Generator Using Array

Mar 29, 2010

I am taking a Javascript class and the teacher assigned this: Quote: Write a script that uses a random number generation to create sentences and name it sentences.html. Use five arrays of strings called: uppercase article (uarticle), noun, verb, lowercase article (larticle), and preposition. You will need to use the correct case for the article arrays. Create a sentence by selecting a word at random from each array in the following order: uarticle, noun, verb, preposition, larticle, noun. You can find examples of generating random numbers in both Fig. 8.6 (dice-rolling) and Fig. 8.7 (random image) of Chapter 8.

The arrays should be filled at minimum, as follows: the article array(s) should contain the articles: the, a, one, some and any. The noun array should contain the nouns: boy, girl, dog, town and car. The verb array should contain the verbs: drove, jumped, ran, walked, and skipped. The preposition array should contain the prepositions: to, from, over, under and on. If you would like to add more words, adjust the arrays appropriately.
