I can help (as can most members here) but a quick question first. Why?

Edit: Not asking why we should help,just asking what you need it for.

Welcome to the forums.

Here are two ways. There would be more ways of doing this.

First - Randomizes the index of the \$alpha array,

Second - Displays a random ascii character between 97 = "a" and 122 = "z".

```Local \$alpha[26] = ["a", "b", "c", "d", "e", "f", "g", "h", "i", "j", "k", "l", "m", "n", "o", "p", "q", "r", "s", "t", "u", "v", "w", "x", "y", "z"]
Local \$sRes

; One way
\$sRes = "Random Index = "
For \$x = 0 To 25
\$sRes &= \$alpha[Random(0, 25, 1)]
Next

; Another way
\$sRes &= @CRLF & @CRLF & "Chr(random)    = "
For \$x = 0 To 25
\$sRes &= Chr(Random(97, 122, 1))
Next
MsgBox(0, "", \$sRes)```

```Func _RandomArray()
Local \$alpha[26]
\$alpha[0] = "a"
\$alpha[1] = "b"
; etc.
Return \$alpha[Random(26)]
EndFunc```

Something like that?

I asked for this code bcoz i want to create a program that can create random passwords for me. I am playing online games and i want to secure my account by changing it to random passwords. That's what i want but I have to learn more autoit code to be able to do something like that.

I really want to learn autoit.
