Randomly executing one out of lets say 3 functions?

Recommended Posts


Hi there,

is it possible to make Autoit randomly execute one function out of a bigger pool of functions?

Lets say I have coded the following functions:

Func _MyFunc1()

Func _MyFunc2()

Func _MyFunc3()

How do I make autoit execute one of those randomly at a certain point in the skript?

I tried to randomize the numbers "1" to "3" via the randomize function. But i didn't manage to make it work. See my tries:

$rnd = string(random(1,3,1))

;1st alternative to execute the function - didn't work

;2nd alternative to execute the function - didn't work

;3rd alternative to execute the function - didn't work

I would be very glad, if you could give a hand with this - I am terribly bad with autoit :huh2:

Try this:

Local $funcs[4] = [ _
    "MyFunc1", _
    "MyFunc2", _
    "MyFunc3", _
    "MyLastFunctionInPool" _

Call($funcs[Random(0, UBound($funcs) - 1, 1)])      ; you can pass parameters as well, see help

Func MyFunc1()
    ; do something version 1
    MsgBox(0, "", "Function 1 is running")

Func MyFunc2()
    ; do something version 2
    MsgBox(0, "", "Function 2 is running")

Func MyFunc3()
    ; do something version 3
    MsgBox(0, "", "Function 3 is running")

Func MyLastFunctionInPool()
    ; do something else
    MsgBox(0, "", "Last function is running")
