Random Function

Applies to TestComplete 14.90, last modified on June 15, 2021

The Random function generates random numbers within the specified range. There are two implementations of this routine:

Declaration

Random()
Result     Float  
Random(iRange) Parameters
iRange [in] Required Integer
Result     Integer  

Description

Returns a random number within the specified range. If the iRange variable is empty, the function generates a float random number within the range from 0 to 1. If the parameter is specified, the function generates a random integer in the range 0..iRange - 1.

Parameters

The function has the following parameter:

iRange

Specifies the right limit of the range defined by the (iRange - 1) expression. A random number is generated within the specified range.

Return Value

A randomly generated value whose type depends on the function implementation:
If iRange is not specified, the return value is a float-type random number. If iRange is specified, the function returns an integer number.

Example

The code below demonstrates how to obtain random integer numbers:

DelphiScript

function RandomFunction;
var i, randomValue;
begin
  for i := 1 to 10 do
  begin
    randomValue := Random(100);
    Log.Message(IntToStr(randomValue));
  end;
end;
