The function utils.generateRandomValueBetween(min, max) does generate a new random number every time you call it. If you assign it to a property, then it only gets evaluated once at instantiation. However, the following example works as expected – each time a new entity is generated it gets assigned with a new integer value:

import VPlay 1.0
import QtQuick 1.1

GameWindow {  

  EntityManager {
    id: entityManager
    entityContainer: scene
  }

  Scene {
    id: scene

    Component.onCompleted: {

      for(var i=0; i<10; i++) {
        entityManager.createEntityFromComponentWithProperties(entityComponent, {x: i*20})
      }
    }


  }

  Component {
    id: entityComponent

    EntityBase {

      property int randNums: utils.generateRandomValueBetween(1,100)

      Text {
        text: randNums
        color: "blue"
      }
    }
  }
}

 

Does this solution work for you?

Cheers, Chris
