How to Create Randomly Select an Element From the List

In this tutorial, we will create a "How to Randomly Select an Element From a List". We will cover the creation of a program that selects an element from a list randomly. The main goal here is to understand the concept of randomly selecting an element from a list. I will provide a sample program to demonstrate the actual coding of this tutorial.

This topic is very easy to understand; just follow the instructions I provide, and you can also do it yourself with ease. The program I will show you is how to select a random element from list. I will do my best to provide you with the easiest method of creating this program, called "Randomly Select an Element From the List". So, let's start with the coding.

Getting Started:

First you will have to download & install the Python IDLE's, here's the link for the Integrated Development And Learning Environment for Python

Creating Main Function

This is the main function of the application. The following code will display a simple GUI in terminal console of counting the number of digits. To do this, simply copy and paste these blocks of code into the IDLE text editor.
  1. import random
  3. my_list = [1, 'a', 32, 'c', 'd', 31, 'e', 12, 'f', 5, 'g', 7]
  5. while True:
  6. ret=False
  8. print("\n\n================= Randomly Select an Element From the List =================\n\n")
  11. print(my_list)
  13. input("\n\nPress enter to randomly select from the list: ")
  15. print("You have selected=>",random.choice(my_list))
  18. user_input=input("\n\nTry again? (Yes/No): ")
  19. print("\n\n")
  20. if user_input.lower()=='no':
  21. print("Exit program.")
  22. break
  24. elif user_input.lower()=='yes':
  25. ret=True
  27. else:
  28. print("Wrong input.")
  29. ret=True
  32. if ret:
  33. continue

The provided code begins by creating a variable to store a list with some elements. Next, a loop is implemented to run the program, and the random function is utilized to select an element randomly from the list.
