listRandom

Synopsis

string listRandom(string stringList)

Returns

Returns random item of stringList.

This function returns a random item of the stringList.

Note.1: Getting a random element often is directly combined with a wildcard search. See example.2

Note.2: Stringlists are a series of strings stored inside one string. The elements are separated by a semicolon (";"). Each item must be followed by a semicolon, also the last one! The data type is "string", thus it is not an array as used in other scripting languages.
