Randomize a List in C#

To randomize a list in C# we can loop through the list using While the index bigger than index 0, and create random number using Next() function and switch values of current index and generated index.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
public class Program
	public static void Main()
		List<int> myValues = new List<int>(new int[] { 1, 2, 3 } );
		int n = myValues.Count;  
		Random rng = new Random();  
		while (n > 1) {  
			int k = rng.Next(n + 1);  
			int currentVal = myValues[k];  
			myValues[k] = myValues[n];  
			myValues[n] = currentVal;  
		Console.WriteLine("Lists " + string.Join(", ", myValues));
