I would like to know how to generate a  random character consisting of the alphabet and numbers 0-9.

And then I would like to add 16 random characters to an array that I can use for a keycode.

        Dim strArray(15) As String
        Dim c As Char
        Dim i As Integer

        For i = 0 To 15
            strArray(i) = ""Random Char Generation Here.""
        Next
Can anyone give me a hand?

do you need sometihing like this:
Dim Rand As String = String.Empty
        Dim r As Random = New Random(DateTime.Now.Millisecond)

        Dim i As Int32

        For i = 0 To 15
            If r.Next(1, 3) = 2 Then

                Rand += (Microsoft.VisualBasic.ChrW(r.Next(48, 57)).ToString())
            Else

                Rand += (Microsoft.VisualBasic.ChrW(r.Next(65, 90)).ToString())
            End If
        Next

        MsgBox(Rand)
