    Random Number Generator

    Im trying to make a random number generator for 8 shapes,and im have a little trouble at da moment with my coding.

    so far my function looks like this:


    public void random(){
    for(int i =1;i <8; i++){
    int n1 = (int) (Math.Random() * number);
    int n2 = (int) (Math.Random() * number);
    Shape temp = stack[n1];
    stack[n1] = stack[n2];
    stack[n2] = temp;
    }
    }
    }


    it wont seem to compile,so do i have to declare my n1 variables ? and also stack? IF i want to call the random function,how do i call it?

    The random method in Math is lower case. This sort of problem can be easily solved by looking up the searchable documentation online at:
    http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/search.html

    Try to get accustomed to using it. You'll find your answer much faster than you will through a message board.

    If you compile a Java file and get a "connot resolve symbol" error, check all the spellings & cases are consistent (on that particular line number reported as containing the error) with what they should be, then check you've imported the correct classes/packages for what you have in your code.

    Cheers, DaveMark
