Call Random Pictures

I'm trying to create an app that each time someone want to go to a new picture, it calls up a random one so that each time they are in the app, it is a different experience.

Does anyone know of any sample code for this to work?

  • Create it yourself, it shouldn't be hard. Use filesystem to get the names of the image files, then randomly select them using rand or some other method.

  • Just download this function:


    Call your images 0.png 1.png 2.png etc

    Then use something like this:

    var rondomnumber = rand(0,(20-1)); //change 20 to the amount of images you have
    var tabs3 = Titanium.UI.createButton( //or something else then a button...
    backgroundImage: randomnumber+'.png'
