hey there, umm so i have an array of words and now i need to be able to randomly choose one of those words when the appropriate button is clicked, its for a hangman game...
i know that
goes in there sumwhere...

thanks heaps..

and what you can not accomplish?

selectedword := words[random(high(MAX_WORDS))];

Assuming words array is 0 based like :

words : array [0..MAX_WORDS] of string;

Before calling random function you should call procedure randomize, it will initiate pseudorandom number generator.
It's necessary because without calling procedure randomize you will get the same random sequence
