Can you use the DEC values for letters?

Recommended Posts

In the help file for Ascii characters there is a column with DEC

Char Dec Hex Description

32 20 Space

! 33 21 Exclamation mark

" 34 22 Quotation mark (" in HTML)

# 35 23 Cross hatch (number sign)

$ 36 24 Dollar sign

etc

What I was looking to do was the create random letters and symbols and I thought that the DEC values in the help file are just numerical, so if I created a random number between 32 and 125 then this would give me a random letter/symbol

So can you use the DEC values and turn the back in to Characters.

I'm sure you can I just cant see it!

like this

While 1
    
    $Num = Random(32, 125, 1)
    
    MsgBox(0,"letter/character", Chr($num))
    
WEnd

8)

Yep thats it

Chr() was what I was looking for but I just couldn't see it!!

Thanks :P

It works cool..

Its a screensaver for a multi-training bay program where one of our trainers can select the customer they are training.

Problem was that the machine can not run a normal screen saver and I only wanted one to run while the login and customer choice was active.

All it does is randomly generate a string across a black screen which says "All your bays are belong to us" but puts up random charaters before settling on the correct one.

Just thought I should post up what it was all for and say thanks again..
