Select or generate n random numbers / items from list in Asp.net C#

Description: While working on project i got the requirement to get n random numbers from list. I was able to get this requirement fulfilled very easily using LINQ. I am going to share this with all so that it might help me and others in future. 


Implementation: Let’s understand by an example. 

    protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        List<int> list = new List<int>() { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 };
        List<int> randomNumberList = new List<int>();
        randomNumberList = GetRandomElements(list, 3);
    }

  public List<t> GetRandomElements<t>(IEnumerable<t> list, int elementsCount)
    {
        return list.OrderBy(x => Guid.NewGuid()).Take(elementsCount).ToList();
    }

On first run it produced result as:


get random numbers or items from list od numbers in asp.net C#


On second runt the result was:


get random numbers or items from list od numbers in asp.net C#
