    [AS3]Random do something without repeat


    I've 3 movieclip on stage which is mc1,mc2,mc3
    at first they are alpha=0

    What I want is when i click on revealBtn, 1 of them will show up as alpha=1.

    But with my code below, sometimes I need to click about 5 times or more only can make all those mc show up.

    Is there any solution for what I wanted?

    var mcArray:Array = [mc1,mc2,mc3];
    for (var j:int = 0; j < mcArray.length; j++)
    mcArray[j].alpha = 0;

    revealBtn.buttonMode = true;
    revealBtn.useHandCursor = false;
    revealBtn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, revealClick);

    function revealClick(event:MouseEvent):void
    //Generate random number (integer) between 0 and mcArray.length
    var i:Number = Math.floor(Math.random() * mcArray.length);

    //Select ith element of mcArray
    var movieClipToEdit:MovieClip = mcArray[i] as MovieClip;

    //Change its alpha to 1
    movieClipToEdit.alpha = 1;

    press the picture...
    Then it would not be random any more. What you need to do is to select the first button randomly and then deleting the button id from the array. Now the array contains only the two remaining buttons and next time one of those will be selected until only one button is left.
