Randomize Data in An Array

Discussion in 'PHP' started by qdsouza, Aug 31, 2005.

    I am just learning php and am trying to randomize data in an array. I am creating a bingo card script that will allow teachers to create a bingo card from words that the enter in a form.

    What I would like to do is randomize the words that were entered in the form, that I placed into an array.

    
    $wbingo = array('$word','$word1','$word2','$word3','$word4', '$word5', '$word6', '$word7', '$word8');
    
    PHP:
    That way I can randomize the words on the bingo board. In this case I have 9 words, I will also have a card with 25 words. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    shuffle($wbingo);

    Thanks for the link I bookmarked it.

    I bought Larry Ulman's "Php for the world wide web" and am taking online php courses through VTC canada. I like learning by doing new projects. I am learning but I'm trying to find a forum that well help support noobies. I'm not sure if this forum is just for experts.

    I used the same code to randomize some links on the bottom of the pages of the sites in my sig. Works well.
