public void perform_action(View v)
{
 /*
  the following example code demonstrate us how can we
   generate a random number within a range

   if we set the range within nextInt() method to 1 to 10
   then the system will generate a random number between 1 to 10
   including both 1 and 10.
  */

 //define a new Random class
 Random r = new Random();

 //minimum number to generate as random number
 int minNumber = 1;

 //maximum number to generate as random number
 int maxNumber = 10;

 //get the next random number within range
 int randomNumber = r.nextInt((maxNumber-minNumber)+minNumber)+minNumber;

 //reference the textview widget
 TextView tv = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.text_view);

 //display the random number to textview
 tv.setText(String.valueOf(randomNumber));
}
