Before we started:

And this is the link for the bootstrap that has been used for the layout of the application

The Main Interface

  27. </div>
  28. </div>
  29. </body>
  30. <script src="js/script.js"></script>
  31. </html>

This code contains the script of the application. This code will generate a password characters where the length is base on the input type value. To do this just copy write the code as shown below inside the text editor and save it as script.js.

  1. var keys = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstubwsyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ1234567890";
  2. var password = '';
  5. function GetPassword(){
  6. var plength = document.getElementById('plength').value;
  7. document.getElementById('password').value = GeneratePassword(plength);
  8. }
  10. function GeneratePassword(plength){
  11. password='';
  12. for(i=0; i<plength; i++){
  13. password+=keys.charAt(Math.floor(Math.random()*keys.length));
  14. }
  16. return password;
  17. }

There you have it we successfully created a Simple Random Password Generator
