Hi I am relatively new to using lingo and i am having a bit of a problem
I have created a piece of code that puts a random numbers (1 to 49) into six boxes and named num 1 to num 6 when a button is pressed
the code for this is as follows:
repeat with i=1 to 6
However this does mean that ocassionally two boxes show up the same number does anyone know how to have each box check if the others has the same number and if it does to change it to another random number.
Thanks in advance
A simple option is to place your generated numbers into a list. Then when you get a new number, check to see whether it's already in the list and if so get one again.
on mouseUp me lNumbers =  repeat with i=1 to 6 repeat while TRUE lvno=random(49) if lNumbers.getPos(lvno) then next repeat exit repeat end repeat lNumbers.append(lvno) Member("num"&i).text=string(lvno) end repeat end
