Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

<StandardModuleAttribute> _
Public NotInheritable Class VBMath

The VBMath type exposes the following members.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberRandomizeInitializes the random-number generator.
Public methodStatic memberRandomize(Double)Initializes the random-number generator.
Public methodStatic memberRndReturns a random number of type Single.
Public methodStatic memberRnd(Single)Returns a random number of type Single.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This module supports the Visual Basic language keywords and run-time library members for generating random numbers.

This example uses the Rnd function to generate a random integer value in the range from 1 to 6.

' Initialize the random-number generator.
' Generate random value between 1 and 6.
Dim value As Integer = CInt(Int((6 * Rnd()) + 1))


Supported in: 5, 4, 3
