Say I have the numbers 1 to 10, and an array with 10 elements. I want to assign the numbers each once to the array in a random order. Does anyone know a easy way to do this? I have tried nesting a while loop in a for loop but it was buggy. It is being used in a simple sliding tile puzzle game to load the image pieces randomly.

oke i''m not an expert.... but,

I would like to be once on the news and,

something like this....

int temp;
boolean taken = true;

for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
while (taken)
temp = random();
for (int j = 0; j <= i; j++)
if (temp = array[j])
taken = true;
j = i+1;
taken = false;
array = temp;

something like that.... maybe it''s no good but it''s something you know.

So bye,
