We will use these two methods to generate random numbers and random characters. We will add ( or combine ) these two to get our random string. Here to get a combination we will use random methods so the positions of numbers and alphabets are not fixed.

Using this you can generate random password strings for any application ( like login script etc )

Now we will keep the script inside a function and use it when required. Here we will make it flexible by accepting one input to the function by which we will tell how many digits are required. So the length of the random string can be managed based on the script design.

Here is the full function with detail explanation with it ( read the comments )

<?Php
function random_generator($digits){
srand ((double) microtime() * 10000000);
//Array of alphabets
$input = array ("A", "B", "C", "D", "E","F","G","H","I","J","K","L","M","N","O","P","Q",
"R","S","T","U","V","W","X","Y","Z");
$random_generator="";// Initialize the string to store random numbers
for($i=1;$i<$digits+1;$i++){ // Loop the number of times of required digits
if(rand(1,2) == 1){// to decide the digit should be numeric or alphabet
// Add one random alphabet
$rand_index = array_rand($input);
$random_generator .=$input[$rand_index]; // One char is added
}else{
// Add one numeric digit between 1 and 10
$random_generator .=rand(1,10); // one number is added
} // end of if else
} // end of for loop
return $random_generator;
} // end of function
echo random_generator(10);
?>
