    Resolved [RESOLVED] timer & 20 unique random numbers

    Hi Everyone,

    I know vb 6.0 is ancient history but i like using it.. always have.

    My question is that i have a timer and a textbox.. i have the timer set to 250 interval.. i can get it to produce 20 random numbers.. but i cannot get it to produce 20 unique random numbers.. it must pick 20 unique numbers from 1 to 80.

    can anyone please help?

    thank you,
    elRuffsta

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    Here try this and modify as you need, let me know if you don't understand something.

    Pretty simple, start new project add this code (no controls).
    Code:
    Option Explicit
    Dim WithEvents Command1 As CommandButton
    Dim WithEvents List1 As ListBox
    
    
    Private Function RndNumArr(FromNumber As Integer, ToNumber As Integer, ArraySize As Integer) As Integer()
    Dim RndCol As New Collection
    Dim RndArr() As Integer
    Dim RndNum As Integer
    Dim i As Integer
      
      Randomize
      
        ReDim RndArr(ArraySize - 1)
      
        For i = FromNumber To ToNumber
          RndCol.Add CStr(i)
        Next
        
        For i = 0 To ArraySize - 1
          RndNum = ((RndCol.Count - 1) - FromNumber + 1) * Rnd + FromNumber
          RndArr(i) = RndCol.Item(RndNum)
          RndCol.Remove RndNum
        Next
      
      RndNumArr = RndArr
    End Function
    
    
    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim j As Integer
    Dim Unique_Number() As Integer
    
      Unique_Number = RndNumArr(1, 80, 20)
    
      List1.Clear
    
      For i = 0 To 19 'Show your 20 unique numbers
        List1.AddItem Unique_Number(i)
      Next
    
      'Simple test to see if any two numbers are the same
        For i = 0 To 19
          For j = 0 To 19
          If i <> j Then If List1.List(i) = List1.List(j) Then MsgBox "Error Same Number Found!"
          Next
        Next
    End Sub
    
    
    Private Sub Form_Load()
    
      Me.Move 500, 500, 3000, 10000
      Set List1 = Controls.Add("VB.ListBox", "List1")
        With List1
          .Move 0, 0, 2000, 8000
          .Visible = True
        End With
        
      Set Command1 = Controls.Add("VB.CommandButton", "Command1")
        With Command1
          .Move 0, 8000, 2000, 800
          .Caption = "Randomize Numbers"
          .Visible = True
        End With
    End Sub

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    And attach your project instead of posting a whole bunch of nonsense code.
    Also add [ code ] [ /code ] tags.

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    Ok, I created your random function, all you need to do is apply it to your program. You didn't tell us what you need to do.

    it's KENO... 80

    i use command1(0) to set focus on after clicking the the others and it would be hidden.. so command1(0) serves no purpose

    so that the number drawn is the same as the button.. 1- 80

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    You could modify the code in the OP to use a loop and reduce the amount of code quite a bit
    Code:
    If a = 1 And Command2(1).BackColor = &H8000000F Then 'MISS
    Command2(1).BackColor = &HFF&
    Else
    If a = 1 And Command2(1).BackColor = &H80FF& Then 'HIT
    Command2(1).BackColor = &HFF00&
    Call HIT 'Play hit sound
    End If
    End If
    If this were in a loop using a index var then you could get rid of the next 20 copies of that bit of code.
    Something like
    Code:
    Dim X As Integer
        For X = 1 To 21
            If a = X And Command2(X).BackColor = &H8000000F Then 'MISS
                Command2(X).BackColor = &HFF&
            Else
                If a = X And Command2(X).BackColor = &H80FF& Then 'HIT
                    Command2(X).BackColor = &HFF00&
                    Call HIT 'Play hit sound
                End If
            End If
        Next

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    [/code]Dim X As Integer
    For X = 1 To 21
    If a = X And Command2(X).BackColor = &H8000000F Then 'MISS
    Command2(X).BackColor = &HFF&
    Else
    If a = X And Command2(X).BackColor = &H80FF& Then 'HIT
    Command2(X).BackColor = &HFF00&
    Call HIT 'Play hit sound
    End If
    End If
    Next[/code]

    works well.. ty... just need to the unique 20 random numbers from 1 to 80 now...

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    This should work into your program.

    If you do indeed have 80 buttons named Command2() indexed 0 to 80, with the Command2(0) doing the focus thing, then this code should work for you.

    Note: RollNumbers

    Code:
    Private Function RndNumArr(FromNumber As Integer, ToNumber As Integer, ArraySize As Integer) As Integer()
    Dim RndCol As New Collection
    Dim RndArr() As Integer
    Dim RndNum As Integer
    Dim i As Integer
      
      Randomize
      
        ReDim RndArr(ArraySize - 1)
      
        For i = FromNumber To ToNumber
          RndCol.Add CStr(i)
        Next
        
        For i = 0 To ArraySize - 1
          RndNum = ((RndCol.Count - 1) - FromNumber + 1) * Rnd + FromNumber
          RndArr(i) = RndCol.Item(RndNum)
          RndCol.Remove RndNum
        Next
      
      RndNumArr = RndArr
    End Function
    
    
    Private Sub RollNumbers() As Integer
    Dim UniqueNumber() As Integer
    Dim iNumber As Integer
    Dim iButton As Integer
    
      UniqueNumber = RndNumArr
    
      For iNumber = 0 To 19
      
        For iButton = 1 To 80
          If iNumber = UniqueNumber(iNumber) Then
            command2(iNumber).BackColor = &HFF& 'Miss
          Else
            command2(iNumber).BackColor = &HFF00& 'Hit
            Call HIT
          End If
        Next iButton
        
      Next iNumber
    End Sub
    All in one Sub.

    Code:
    Private Sub RollNumbers()
    Dim RndCol As New Collection
    Dim RndArr() As Integer
    Dim RndNum As Integer
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim j As Integer
    
      Randomize
      
        ReDim RndArr(19)
      
    'Randomize Numbers (20 unique numbers)
        For i = 1 To 80
          RndCol.Add CStr(i)
        Next
        
        For i = 0 To 19
          RndNum = (RndCol.Count - 1) * Rnd + 1
          RndArr(i) = RndCol.Item(RndNum)
          RndCol.Remove RndNum
        Next
    
    'Check which unique number was picked 
        For i = 1 To 80
          command2(j).BackColor = &HFF& 'Miss
          For j = 0 To 19
            If RndArr(j) = i Then
              command2(i).BackColor = &HFF00& 'Hit
              Call Hit
              Exit For
            End If
          Next
        Next
        
    End Sub
    All you need to code is your timer code, with this you should be able to figure it out. Everything is there.

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    Code:
    'KENO
    'Copyright  2014 Ruffsta Inc.

    Dim res As Integer
    Private z As Integer
    
    
    Private Function RndMath1() As Integer
    Dim a As Integer
    Randomize
    a = Int(Rnd * 80 + 1)
    Text1.Text = a
    
    
    
    Dim X As Integer
        For X = 1 To 80
            If a = X And Command2(X).BackColor = &H8000000F Then 'MISS
                Command2(X).BackColor = &HFF&
            Else
                If a = X And Command2(X).BackColor = &H80FF& Then 'HIT
                    Command2(X).BackColor = &HFF00&
                    Call HIT 'Play hit sound
                End If
            End If
        Next
    
    
    
    
    
    RndMath1 = z
    
    Text2.Text = Text2.Text + 1
    If Text2.Text = 20 Then
    Timer1.Enabled = False
    End If
    End Function
    
    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Timer1.Enabled = True
    
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Command2_Click(Index As Integer)
    
    'Lets's pick out numbers
    If Command2(Index).BackColor = &H8000000F Then 'change back color if we selected a number
    Command2(Index).BackColor = &H80FF& 'change it's backcolor to show we picked that number
    Text3.Text = Text3.Text + 1
    Else
    'If we change our mind on a number
    Command2(Index).BackColor = &H8000000F 'set button to default color
    Text3.Text = Text3.Text - 1
    End If
    
    If Text3.Text = 20 Then
    Command1.Enabled = True
    Else
    Command1.Enabled = False 'hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
    End If
    
    
    
    
    Command2(0).SetFocus
    
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    z = RndMath1 'draw a new number every 1/2 second
    End Sub
    
    Private Function HIT()
    res = sndPlaySound("doublepoint.wav", SND_ASYNC) 'Play this sound if a number you picked was drawn
    End Function
    you'll see the rnd fuction and timer1 coding... the timer draws the numbers into a textbox... i have no problem doing.. it's just they are not unique...

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    Here's a pretty much complete Keno game I wrote when I was helping out isnoend with his version of the game some time ago. I just did it for fun so there aren't extensive comments and you'll have to figure out how to play it but you can bet on multiple cards, have random selections made for you etc. Oh, and there are configuration options to adjust payout odds to match well-known casinos

    Take from it what you like...

    Oh, and excuse any untidy coding you come across - it was kind of thrown together...

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    I noticed I put 21 instead of 20 in this sub

    Code:
    Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    Static UniqueNumber() As Integer
    Static i As Integer
    Dim j As Integer
      
      If i = 0 Then UniqueNumber = RndNumArr(1, 80, 20)
      Debug.Print UniqueNumber(i)
      For j = 1 To 80
        If j = UniqueNumber(i) Then
          Command2(j - 1).BackColor = vbGreen
          'Hit 'Play sound
        End If
      Next
      
      i = i + 1
      
      If i = 20 Then
      i = 0
      Timer1.Enabled = False
      MsgBox "Game Over"
      End If
      
    End Sub
    The 20 in red is actually 21 in my keno(updated), just change it to 20 like the code above.

    Re: timer & 20 unique random numbers

    Did this function somehow get overlooked in the code I posted?

    Code:
    Public Function GetRandomPicks(pNumberOfPicks As Integer, pSampleSize As Integer) As Integer()
    Dim thesePicks() As Integer
    Dim Sample() As Integer
    Dim i As Integer, thisIndex As Integer
    
        ReDim thesePicks(1 To pNumberOfPicks)
        ReDim Sample(1 To pSampleSize)
        
        'start with a straight sequence of numbers from 1 to SampleSize
        For i = 1 To pSampleSize
            Sample(i) = i
        Next i
        
        'shuffle them about so that the upper part of the sample contains the random numbers chosen...
        For i = 1 To pNumberOfPicks
            Randomize
            thisIndex = Int(((pSampleSize - i) * Rnd) + 1)
            thesePicks(i) = Sample(thisIndex)
            Sample(thesePicks(i)) = pSampleSize + 1 - i
        Next i
        
        GetRandomPicks = thesePicks
        
    End Function
    Returns an array of X unique picks from a sample of Y possible numbers....

    Re: [RESOLVED] timer & 20 unique random numbers

    That's fine. It's just there's lots of other stuff in there you can probably make use of, or at least learn from.
