ArrayShuffle - Shuffling the elements of an array of any type

 ' Shuffle the elements of an array of any type
' Example:
'   Dim arr As Integer() = {3, 7, 8, 2, 0, 9}
'   ArrayShuffle(arr)

'   Dim o As Object
'   For Each o In arr
'       Debug.Write(o & " ")
'   Next
'   Debug.WriteLine("")

Sub ArrayShuffle(ByVal arr As Array)
    Dim i, newIndex As Integer
    Dim tmpValue As Object
    Dim rand As New Random

    Dim first As Integer = arr.GetLowerBound(0)
    Dim last As Integer = arr.GetUpperBound(0)

    For i = last To first + 1 Step -1
        ' evaluate a random index for the current item
        newIndex = first + rand.Next(i + 1)
        ' swap the two items
        tmpValue = arr(i)
        arr(i) = arr(newIndex)
        arr(newIndex) = tmpValue
End Sub
