Hi Jeff,

use NewGuid() of the System.Guid-Structure.

[C#]
Guid g = Guid.NewGuid();

[VB.NET]
Dim g as Guid = Guid.NewGuid()

The receipt number must be unique (like a guid is unique) 2. The receipt must be NON sequential. 3. If possible, I'd like it to be 10 to 12 characters long. 4. If possible, I'd like to include only...

I want to create a unique id for each of a set of objects. These ids may be generated on multiple machines simultaneously and must all be different to each other. There are an undefined number of machines involved (1 to dozens) and an indeterminate number of objects (many to very many on each machine). My best guess for a solution would be to use a GUID (all the machines have an ethernet connection so a GUID generated on any of them...

Hello, I want to generate a unique ID for each page of my Asp.Net application. My first step is to generate a new Guid when the page is loaded for the first time and registers, stores this new Guid in a Dictionary which is saved in the ApplicationState, then I add a hidden field to the page __PageID, so I can get this unique ID on other Postbacks. No problem. The problem is about hackers. They can modify my hidden field to another...
