Hi to Xavier and the ForeUI team,
I need to create a random number in my prototype. I've been trying to hack it by embedding a JavaScript Math.rand() function in a conditional, but I must not be doing it right.
What would be the best way to create a random number?
Thanks,
David Hoard

Hi David,
You should use the Math.random() function to generate the random number, it returns a decimal between 0 and 1. Here is an example of this kind of usage http://www.foreui.net/node/76
Also you can use the expression below to calculate a random number:
number = seed * 29 + 39
Where the seed can be the current second in global properties. Also here is an example http://www.foreui.net/node/64
