Generic Type Method

random(in:using:)

Returns a random value within the specified range, using the given generator as a source for randomness.

Declaration

static func random<T>(in range: ClosedRange<Int8>, using generator: inout T) -> Int8 where T : RandomNumberGenerator

Parameters

range

The range in which to create a random value.

generator

The random number generator to use when creating the new random value.

Return Value

A random value within the bounds of range.

Discussion

Use this method to generate an integer within a specific range when you are using a custom random number generator. This example creates three new values in the range 1...100.

for _ in 1...3 {
    print(Int.random(in: 1...100, using: &myGenerator))
}
// Prints "7"
// Prints "44"
// Prints "21"
