Is there any way I can have a % chance in random events. (say you click on a button and you have a 30% chance of it doing one thing, a 20% chance of doing another, and a 50% chance of it doing another) I have no idea on how to use any of the random # generater commands.
There are two commands/functions you need to use. The first is the Randomize statement… this initializes the random number generator. The second is the Rnd function, which will return a random number between 0 and 1, inclusive. Here’s an example of how you might use it to do your 30/20/50 determination:
Sub GetRandomNumber() Dim tmp as Single Randomize ‘ Initialize generator tmp = Rnd() if tmp >= 0 And tmp <= .3 then ' 30% Condition Code ElseIf tmp > .3 And tmp <= .5 then ' 20% Condition Code Else ' 50% Condition Code, since tmp can only be from .5 < tmp <= 1 at this ' point. End IfEnd Sub
