Beginner Question

Hi!
This is my first post here, so be nice.. ;)
I am working on a quiz game and would like to know how to make my questions appear randomly.

Anynoe?

you can do is like this, but i dont know if its good enough approach)

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9

local words = {"i", "am", "the", "beginner", "in", "corona", "sdk", "and", "this", "is", "an", "random", "words", "with", "timer", "example"}
 
local wordTXT = display.newText("", 0,0, nil, 50)
 
local function change_words()
 
for i=1,math.random(1,#words),1 do
wordTXT.text = words[i]
wordTXT.x = math.random(70,300)
wordTXT.y = math.random(70,300)
end
end
 
timer.performWithDelay(500, change_words,0)

Thats definetly random.. but not exactly what Im looking for (I think). Being a complete beginner I would not know how to implement this in my app. Any way I could contact you by mail so I dont have to spam the forum? Any help would be appreciated...

i'm glad to help

You would also need to add

math.randomseed(os.time())

to make it more random
