  • Hello,

     My suggestion is to code random pick of objects from source array.

    Then place random selected objects into another array.  Try to work

    out what code you need that will provide a possible solution.


     When you have a basic code project and need further assistance then

    post a new question regarding the issues of that code. Such as syntax

    usage and errors.


     I do not provide code solution without seeing OP (Original Poster) efforts.

    Because this is not how a person learns to code programs. You must take

    the time and effort by learning C# language and syntax.  There are many

    books, online tutorials that can provide this aid in the form of instructional

    sample code.


     Thanks :)

  • Hi SebGM2018,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, you could try the code below.

    List<int> array = new List<int> { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 };
                Random rnd = new Random();
                int[] MyArry = array.OrderBy(x => rnd.Next()).ToArray();

    Best Regards,
