Hello Joely

Do you mean the program form or it's main unit(unit1)
because i doubt it would work only in the main unit(unit1)
If you only put it in the main file does it work ???

You need to put it in each function that you need to use Random() as in...

procedure Whatever;
var
  i : Integer;
begin
  Randomize;
  i := Random(200);
end;

btw- Barry, I'm still curious and don't know how to make those stars... Did you have time to send the floopies???

Cheers,
Viktor

Hello Viktor

I should put it every time I'm using Random function. Why ?
Why don't I just put it once, for example in formcreate or formshow.

Because the Randomize function simply randomizes the seed of the real random number..thus if you want to have a completely different number in somewhere youshould do that... Possibly in each of the functions where you use Random()...

Cheers,
Viktor
