How to generate a random number in GUIDE
« on: May 09, 2018, 11:36:23 AM »
Hi all!

Thought I'd share this Random_Num_gen function block takes an input and creates a number based on the seed. It's an example on how to generate random numbers in GUIDE. See the block for more details!

Best regards

Hi Anjaahir!

The Random_Num_Gen function block takes an input and creates a number based on the seed. This block will create a unique seed on startup if an initial seed is not set. The unique number is based upon the ยตSecond Timer in the block. This block will help you if you for your functionality need to create random numbers e.g. a temporary password. For more details please open the block itself. In the .ZIP-file there is a .SCS that you can double click on and it will open in the Module viewer and from there copy the block into your application if you want to use it.

I hope this helps!
