  • Hi,


    You need to store a large list of the quotes you want to display. Would be easier to do this in a file, one per line. Then you can use the System.IO.File.ReadAllLines() method which will read the file and create an array containing your files content, so one element in the array contains a quote. Next you want to use System.Random (I think) class to select a random number between 0 and the size of the array (the upperbounds), then you use that number to index a quote in the array and displays, hey bingo a random quote.
