Generating Random File Name

Sometimes we may need to generate a random file name. In VBScript we can use Scriptlet.TypeLib to generate GUID for random data, but length of the GUID is too long.

If we need a shorter random file name, it can be generated using GetRandomFileName method.


Dim oPath,strFileName

'Creating instance of System.IO.Path class which contains GetRandomFileName method
Set oPath=DotNetFactory.CreateInstance("System.IO.Path")

'Assigning random filename in a variable using GetRandomFileName method

Msgbox strFileName

Set oPath=Nothing

Although there are several ways to generate random file name, this technique can be used where we require a shorter random data to be used as file name.
