I think this what you want,


following code works for both AS2 and AS3 without any change..
var myArray = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9];
 
trace("before:"+myArray);
myArray = myArray.sort(Randomise);	
trace("after:"+myArray);
 
function Randomise(a, b):Number {
	var num:Number = Math.round(Math.random()*2)-1;
	return num;
}
