Random Object From an Array

 / Published in: Rails


I created an array of objects, but I wanted to reuse the array and pull one random object out of it so this is the code that I found thanks to this:

  1. <%
  2. # Seems to work for me. I just set the code to a variable.
  3. @array = Model.all(:conditions => "condition_1 = true", :order => "name ASC", :limit => 10)
  4. @random_object = @array[rand(@array.length)]
  5. %>
