The following may do. Or you can modify it to include all possible characters.

function RandomString(SLen: Integer): string;
var
  str: string;
begin
  Randomize;
  //string with all possible chars
  str    := 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ~!@#$%^&*()_+`{}\|[];:,./<>?1234567890';
  Result := '';
  repeat
    Result := Result + str[Random(Length(str)) + 1];
  until (Length(Result) = SLen)
end;

Ok, but in php I have this code:

<?php
        $bytes = openssl_random_pseudo_bytes(20);
      echo(strtolower(urlencode($bytes)))
?>

The output is something like this: %2a%be%c0i%8f%a9%8e%99j%7fy%40f%b9%97%d2%f2%adb%9c

Can you help me do this ?

The output is something like this: %2a%be%c0i%8f%a9%8e%99j%7fy%40f%b9%97%d2%f2%adb%9c
That's because you used URL encode: echo(strtolower(urlencode($bytes)))

The output you got first was, something like: "*¾Ài©Ž™j y@f¹—Òò­bœ" which has length of 20 as stipulated.

Your next question will be, does delphi has urlencode function?
Yes, see this link for variety of options.

The openssl_random_pseudo_bytes has encryption ability by passing a second boolean parameter that would provide encrypted bytes, if needed.

You can use: Char(random(Integer)):
function random_pseudo(Len: Integer): string;
begin
  Randomize;
  Result:= '';
  while Length(Result) < Len do begin
    Result := Result + Char(Random(255) + 1);
  end;
end;

Open in new window



@akb:
What happens when calling "RandomString(0);"?
