plz help me in generating 5 unique random number between 0 to 8

1 solution

This is about System.Random, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.random.aspx[^]. Don't repeat a common mistake, the instance of this class only once (per application domain per runtime).

What means "unique"? Does it mean all 5 should be different? In this case, put all generated values in dictionary (System.Collection.Generic.Dictionary); each time check up if the newly added value is already in dictionary. If it is already there, try again, if not add it.

Thank you for your confirmation. So, my recommendation to use Dictionary will work in this case. This is the solution.
Is anything still unclear?
