[thelist] VBScript output randomizer

Hi Bill, and thanks for the reply.  One thing I do not understand from this,
is how it ties in to the array I've already created:

Dim dancer(3)


Or, if I've not done the array correctly, how the code below will be written
to tie it into the images that need to randomize.  Help please?

Hi Jenni,

I would do something like this:

Function RandomNumber(intHighestNumber)
	RandomNumber = Int(intHighestNumber * Rnd) + 1
End Function

'if you have 4 images, you would call it like this:

touse = RandomNumber(4)


Then, touse will hold a value of 1,2,3, or 4.

using your css rules pre-defined, you can simply output like this:

<div class="dancer" id="dancer<%= touse %>"></div>
