# Random Number But Only Once?

Aug 31, 2011

I'm trying to apply something in my forums, where a member could post something let's say:"Hi, I am number 1, 6"And what would happen is that, a number from 1 to 6 would be the content, for example, it would be:"Hi, I am number 3"But if you refresh the page, it would still be the same number. Like it won't be randomized again.So how do I make a javascript/html code that would make a one time number randomizer.

But what do you do if you want to generate a number between 201 and 400.

## Regenerating A Random Number?

Apr 23, 2009

I set myself the task of creating a button which, when pressed, switches the background color randomly. It seems to work well enough but the random number it works from only generates once at page load.As a workaround, I added a second 'Reset Page' button, but I really want just one button that switches the page color every time you prod it. Any ideas how to reset the random number to achieve this?Here's the code.

## Make A Random Number Between 1 And 1,000?

## Random Number Generation Different For IEs?

May 10, 2009

All the numbers should match. It's not working right in any version of IE I test it in (6, 7 and 8). I'm also using jQuery, fyi.When you click the button to stop the numbers, I'm setting a variable named winner to a number (3, 4 or 5). Right now, I have it set to 5. This number determines how many of the slots match:[code]I'm then generating a random number (0-8) to base all the other numbers off of . Three numbers will always match, so I'm setting two more variables to match that random number.[code]Then I do some conditionals to check the value of winner. If it's 4, I set the 4th number to random number, then generate a random number for the 5th spot while it doesn't equal randomnum. I do something similar if winner is set to 5.[code]The goto trigger sends the scroll to the specified index according to slotnum(1-5).I'm waiting to hear back from the plugin developer to see if it's something to do with that.However, I just want to make sure my logic in generating those numbers is sound. It works perfectly in FF, Opera and Chrome but (surprise!) not in any of the IEs (tested in 6, 7 and 8).

## Button Prints Out Random Number

Sep 23, 2011

I am trying to make it so that when you press a button it prints out a random number. This is what I currently have:

Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
function randomnumber(randomForm){
var x=Math.floor(Math.random()*11);
document.write(x);
}
</script>
<FORM>
<INPUT type="button" value="Print Number" name="button1" onClick="randomnumber(this.form)">
</FORM>

When I click on the button it just clears all the text from the page and clears the bgcolor. A random number then appears at the top left corner. I am trying to make it so that when I press the button it prints out a random number just above or below the button. Is this possible? if so how do you set it up?

## Generate Random Number Within A Range?

Jun 30, 2009

I am trying to generate random number within a range. My code at the moment is

Code:

var uppermax = 100; var uppermin = 10; var upperdiff = uppermax - uppermin; var lowermax = 10; var lowermin = 0; var lowerdiff = lowermax - lowermin; var rand = Math.floor(upperdiff + 1) * Math.random() + uppermin; alert(rand);

I know math.floor is supposed to round down to the nearest integer, but the generator is still coming back with a float.

## Create Random Number Between 1 - 50 With Decimals?

May 24, 2011

How would I go about creating a random number between 1-50 that COULD include whole numbers, decimals to the tenth, hundredth and the thousandth place?
Ex) 2.145, 3, 5.8, 41.002, 10.12, 7, 18.023, 33.2

Also, if the only way to do it is to put trailing zeros to the thousandth place that's fine as well
Ex) 2.145, 3.00, 5.800, 41.002, 10.120, 7.00, 18.023, 33.200

## Adding Random Number To HTML Form?

May 29, 2009

I have a pretty basic HTML form, it doesn't go to a database or anything, it just gets emailed directly to the owner of the website with their customer query.However, the owner has now asked that each query be assigned a random reference number of no more than 16 digits which must also be visible to the customer.I presume this will be relatively easy but I'm a complete beginner with Javascript which I assumed would be necessary for generating the number. I've sort of figured out how to generate the number but I can't figure out how to get that number into a read-only field on the form so that it will be both visible to the client and sent with the rest of the data on the form to the owner.I've had a number of attempts but this is what I'm trying at the moment:
