### Random Number

Is there a way I can make iopus generate a random number (1-99999999999999999999999999999999)
and then make it post it, so it would be like this:

TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA FORM=NAME:NoFormName ATTR=ID:Message CONTENT=\$randomnumber?

Cheers,
Sam

1. If you use the iMacros Scripting Edition please see this VBS script. It does exactly what you need And with iimInit ("-fx") can use Firefox instead of the iMacros Browser.

2. In iMacros for Firefox itself you can use basically the same approach with the Javascript interface.

To generate a random number in JavaScript, simply use the following code:

Code: Select all

``var randomnumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*11)``
where 11 dictates that the random number will fall between 0-10. To increase the range to, say, 100, simply change 11 to 101 instead.

Some of you may be curious as to why Math.floor(), instead of Math.round(), is used in the above code. While both successfully round off its containing parameter to an integer within the designated range, Math.floor does so more "evenly", so the resulting integer isn't lopsided towards either end of the number spectrum. In other words, a more random number is returned using Math.floor().

Cheers,
but I don't understand how you enter this into an iim, and then post that number into a text box.

Thanks- Sam

### Re: Random Number

var randomnumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*11)

This will generate random number and assign it to "randomnumber" variable

Now use below command......
iimSet("rnumber", randomnumber);
iimPlay("yourmacro.iim")

Now you can user "rnumber" where you want to use generated random number.

This doesn't work for me.... I tried using a random code generator site but when I extract the data it adds a space at the end of the code but is there any way I can get rid of the space? I tried using the {BACKSPACE} function but that doesn't work

this is the site http://www.dave-reed.com/Nifty/randSeq.html

Hey Dharmesh.

Would this work for the random wait time generator?. If so, how would i edit it, to work and put it into my macro for FF?.

Im trying to get the wait time, to be between 60secs and 400 secs. With a random number between that.

### Re: Random Number

Hi,

I'm a very beginner at this, but I also want to generate a random number.
In my script, I want to make it WAIT a random number of seconds.

What do I do for this to work on my .iim?

Do I create two .js script? One with

"var randomnumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*101)"

and another to actually run the iim?

"iimSet("rnumber", randomnumber);
iimPlay("autoreg.iim")"

If this is the case, what do I input in the .iim to load this script?

I want it to insert in "WAIT SECONDS="
