    Randomly selecting the .....

    aktell2007 Level 1

      Hi there,


      I have a set up with an HSlider where I can select my ViewStack.

      change="viewStack.selectedIndex = event.value;"

      I'm looking for the 'Random' selection of the selectedIndex at StartUp to initilize my timer ???


      thanks in advance aktell 2007

          This should answer your question:


          <?xml version="1.0"?>
          <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
                private function init():void{
                  var num:Number = Math.floor(Math.random() * vs.numChildren);
                  vs.selectedIndex = num;
            <mx:ViewStack id="vs">
              <mx:VBox width="200" height="200" backgroundColor="0xFF0000"/>
              <mx:VBox width="200" height="200" backgroundColor="0x00FF00"/>
              <mx:VBox width="200" height="200" backgroundColor="0x0000FF"/>
              <mx:VBox width="200" height="200" backgroundColor="0x000000"/>
              <mx:VBox width="200" height="200" backgroundColor="0xCCCCCC"/>
            <mx:Button click="init();" label="Refresh"/>
