What is it you are trying to achieve?
I am trying to randomize the question pattern in my project. For example I have ten questions and the pattern of how the computer will ask the user the questions will be different.



What is the problem you are having?
<Answer Here>


Describe what you have tried to solve this problem
I tried using the rand but i dont know how to do it with the strings .

Post any relevant code (You may choose to attach the file instead of posting the code if it is too long)

Make an array, put ur question in there and have randint chose a cell in the array randomly. When the question has been answered, the cell is replaced with a filler word where if the filler word is in a cell it will redo the random int and pick another cell (assuming you want each question to only be asked once).

Okay so I did this and I dont know if i am doing it correctly. Help me with this please. And how do I make the randint choose a cell for once so that it asks the question only once.
This is my code so far:

procedure randomQuestions
randint (randQuestions,1,4)

for x: 1..4
questions (x) := 1
end for

for x: 1..4
if repeatQuestions = randomQuestions (x) then
repeatQuestions := false
end if
end for
end randomQuestions

var repeatQuestions:boolean:=true
var questions: array1..4 of string
var randQuestions:int

these are my variables.

after you go into that cell and ask the question replace it with a value so that if that value is in the cell that your rand int chooses, it goes back to the rand int line and selects a different cell. Also, im sorry but the code you wrote dosent make any sense to me... it has 6 errors. Neutral

With the code you gave me this is what i assummed you meant. If not, can i get more detail??
code:
var questions: array 1..10 of string
var asdf:int
for i:1..10
questions(i):="question: "+ intstr(i)
end for
procedure randthing
randint(asdf,1,10)
end randthing
loop
delay(1000)
randthing
if questions(asdf) not= "X" then
put questions(asdf)
questions(asdf):="X"
end if
end loop

Thank You for the code but its a quiz so I need the question to be displayed once only. The code works, thank you but what should I change in it so that it displays the questions only once. I'll send you my work. My work has a lot other things. Sorry if it bothers you. I also have a lot of things to fix but just look at my thing.

please take a look at flexible arrays, you want to remove the question after its displayed to avoid duplicates.

http://compsci.ca/v3/viewtopic.php?t=7390

http://compsci.ca/holtsoft/doc/flexible.html

you should play around with it and understand how it works otherwise you'll have a big headache.

Turing:

%%%%FLEXibLE array is key to victory!!!
var questions : flexible array 0 .. 2 of string

%%should populate via txt file
questions(0) := "A"
questions(1) := "B"
questions(2) := "C"

%%example of how your doing it -> duplicates can happen
for i: 0 .. 2
    put questions(Rand.Int(0,2))
end for
put "----br----" put ""

%%you can use a counter to check if its been posted yet
%% but i wouldn't recommend this way, its wasteful of resources

%%so....

%%how to correctly do it is to
%%remove array elements after its used to avoid duplicates
loop   
    var r : int := Rand.Int(0,upper(questions))
    var question : string := questions(r)
    questions(r) := questions(upper(questions))
    new questions, upper (questions) - 1
    put question
    exit when upper(questions) < 0
end loop

Sorry but we are not allowed to use flexible arrays. Just arrays and randint, not Rand.Int because we still didn't learn it yet.

ranint is just a proc so you can still use it just modify it then, and if your not aloud to use flexible arrays just have a counter inside the loop to fine which question was posted to avoid posting it again.

Turing:

var questionsToBePosted : array 0 .. 2 of string
var postedQuestions: array 0 .. 2 of boolean

%%should have questions populate via txt file
questionsToBePosted(0) := "A"
questionsToBePosted(1) := "B"
questionsToBePosted(2) := "C"

%%example of how your doing it -> duplicates can happen
var r : int %%set var for random number cuz ur teachers a meanie
for i: 0 .. 2 %%Normsl turing standards start at 1, however i count 0 as 1
                %%ex 0..9 = 1 .. 10, its more standard you'll find... (least i do)
    randint(r,0,2) %% PROC CHANGE FROM FuncTION rand.int -ask ur teacher tho cuz its better
    put questionsToBePosted(r)
end for
put "----br----" put ""

%%set all questions not posted
for i: lower(postedQuestions) .. upper(postedQuestions)
    postedQuestions(i):= false
end for

var randomQnum: int
loop
    %%dumb way to solve this problem
    for i: lower(questionsToBePosted) .. upper(questionsToBePosted)
        randint(randomQnum,lower(questionsToBePosted),upper(questionsToBePosted))
        if postedQuestions(i) not= true then %% practice != thx
            if randomQnum = i then
                %%set we post this true and post it
                put questionsToBePosted(i)
                %%set question posted
                postedQuestions(i) := true
            end if
        end if
    end for
end loop
%%tell ur teacher you need to learn the why before the how
%% because this method on a large scale is very
%% innoffective, and very poor code, since it can run 100x without hitting
%% and escape, large scale would never fly...

Um Thank You for helping me with this problem. I finally solved it but I have another Question. In my program I have buttons included and as I have random questions, I cannot say that this is question 1 and this is question 2. How do I do it. I tried this and it kind of works but it doesnt show my GUI Buttons. What should I do.

Code I tried to use for this problem:

% Program User Input
procedure userInput
for x:1..4
title
put "YOU ARE ON QUESTION ",x,"."
randomQuestions
if randQuestion = 1 then
firstQuestion

elsif randQuestion = 2 then
secondQuestion

elsif randQuestion = 3 then
thirdQuestion

elsif randQuestion = 4 then
fourthQuestion

end if
end for
end userInput

My whole project is given Below.

i'm not sure what exactly you mean, what is it you wanted to accomplish?

browsing your code is a bit confusing so i'd like to know specifically, to better assist you, thanks.

I just have one more problem. My program doesn't repeat itself after it the user has answered all the questions. It doesn't randomize either. Actually it stops there. Can u check why this happens. My project is given below. I havent finished it yet. I have done only 13 questions. I need to do 7 more but please help.
