whats wrong with this code I'm trying to do Math.random()

should it be?

function Code(){

var flow = 10

document.write(Math.random() + flow);
}

or should it be?

function Code(){

var flow = 10

Math.random(flow);
}

function randomString(){


var chars = "0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz";
var string_length = 8;
var randomstring = '';
for(var i=0; i < string_length; i++){

   var rnum = Math.floor(Math.random() * chars.length);
   randomstring += chars.substring(rnum,rnum+1);
}

 document.randform.randomfield.value = randomstring;
}

dose anyone know were (document.randformrandomfield.value) comes from trying to work out this part of the code

If you want to generate names you need a list with names which can be used.
There you could use the switch.
For instance:

function Cold(){
var Num = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10);
var Name;
switch(Num){
case 0: Name='Bucky';
break;
case 1: Name='Dave';
break;
case 2: Name='Tina';
break;
case 3: Name='Fred';
break;
.
.
.
}
document.write(Name);
}
Cold();

thats not what I'm looking for I'm trying to randomly generate names?

That code doesn't seem useful: The switch statement checks the value of the randomnumber and in case of your options (e.g. case 0: ) you just say 0 that has no effect...
If you just want to echo the number you just need the document.write(Num):

function Cold(){
var Num = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10);
document.write(Num);
}
Cold();

function Cold(){

var Num = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10);

switch(Num){

case 0: 0;
case 1: 1;
case 2: 2;
case 3: 3;
case 4: 4;
case 5: 5;
case 6: 6;
case 7: 7;
case 8: 8;
case 9: 9;

}

document.write(Num);

}

Cold();


is that right with a switch works but not sure if its couse of the switch or not

if you wanna some rand numbers ... it's your answer :


function rand(){
var rand = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10);
}


* then use a switch or if (conditional statement) to get numbers in random from rand variable. it's should be between 0-9.

is this random array generator correct?

1. function Gold(){

2. var plan = new Array

3. plan[0] = "william"
4. plan[1] = "gus"
5. plan[2] = "kuz"
6. plan[3] = "jim"
7. plan[4] = "cant"

8. for(i = 0; i < plan.length; i++){

9. document.write(Math.floor(Math.random() * plan.length));
10. }
11. }

12. Gold();
