MsgBox with random text

Recommended Posts


Hi. Can you tell me please how to display a MsgBox with a random text? I have $1 = "hi" , $2 = "hello" and $3 = "bye" and everytime I run the script, I want the MsgBox to display a random text from $1 or $2 or $3. Sorry if this is not the right topic for my question.

You were right - it was not! Just start a new topic when you have a question - no-one minds! :)

As to your question, put the 3 values into an array and then use Random to choose one of them for display. You might want to look a the Arrays tutorial in the Wiki first if you are not too familar with using them. Give it go yourself and see how you get on - you know where we are if you run into problems. ;)

As M23 says, something like this?

Dim $aWord[3] = ["Hello", "Hi", "Bye"]
MsgBox(0, "Word", $aWord[Random(0, UBound($aWord)-1, 1)])
