    Default getting a random result

    so i want to make a button and when you click it you see a random joke every time, now i know how to shuffle a array but how on earth can you make it that only 1 string gets randomly picked from a list of strings and how do you print it

    Default

    Lets assume that you put your string inside str array. You will implement random selection like this:

    Java Code:
    Random rand = new Random();
    rand.nextInt(str.length);
    Check javadoc of Random class for details.
