Hello Guys,

is there any function in Delphi where I can shuffle a stringlist? If no, do you have one that could me send?

I Use Delphi XE4

Consider my SL with this:

sl.Add('one');
sl.Add('two');
sl.Add('three');
sl.Add('four');
sl.Add('five');
sl.Add('six');
sl.Add('seven');
sl.Add('eight');
sl.Add('nine');
sl.Add('ten');

How can I shuffle it?

Thanks
Alex

Try this:

 procedure Shuffle(list : TStringList) ;
 var
   randomIndex: integer;
   cnt: integer;
 begin
   Randomize;
   for cnt := 0 to list.Count -1 do
   begin
     randomIndex := Random(-cnt + list.Count) ;
     list.Exchange(cnt, cnt + randomIndex) ;
   end;
 end;
