Description

Initializes the random number generator with a random value.

Randomize initializes the built-in random number generator with a random value (obtained from the system clock). The random number generator should be initialized by making a call to Randomize, or by assigning a value to RandSeed.

Do not combine the call to Randomize in a loop with calls to the Random function. Typically, Randomize is called only once, before all calls to Random.
