How to get random values from array in C#

To get random values from array in C# we can use the return value from random.next(0, array.length) as index to get value from the array.

Example

In below example we get random index within range of [0 -> length of array] and we will print the value of that index.

Remember every time you run the below code you will get different result, as index will be randomly generated.

using System;

public class Example
{
    public static void Main()
    {
    	int[] numbers = new [] {0, 1, 4, 6, 8, 2};
		Random random = new Random();
		int randomIndex = random.Next(0, numbers.Length);
		Console.Write(numbers[randomIndex]);
    }
}
