Perform random sort a list in asp.net c#

Perform random sort a list in asp.net c#, someone asked me to explain?

In this article, I will show how to perform random sort list c# asp.net.The .Net 3.5 framework has Linq,it is a very good feature, it allows us to perform complex operations with efficiency .

Step 1Create an asp.net mvc project and right click on the controller folder and create a new controller and name it as HomeController. Inside the HomeController copy and paste the following code.

public class RandomSortController : Controller
    {
        //
        // GET:/RandomSort/
        models db = new models();
 
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            return View(db.Departments.OrderBy(emp => Guid.NewGuid()).ToList());
        } 
    }

Step 2: Right click on the Share folder and create a razor view named as index. Copy and paste the following code.

@modelIEnumerable<MVC_tutorials.Models.Department>
<h2>Random Sort a List Using LINQ</h2>
<p>
    @Html.ActionLink("CreateNew", "AddDepartment")
</p>
<table class="table">
    <tr>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.DepartmentID)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.Name)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.Description)
        </th>
        <th></th>
    </tr>
 
    @foreach (var item in Model)
    {
        <tr>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.DepartmentID)
            </td>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.Name)
            </td>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.Description)
            </td>
            <td>
                @Html.ActionLink("Edit", "EditDepartmentDetails", new { id = item.DepartmentID }) |
                @Html.ActionLink("Delete", "DeleteDepartment", new { id = item.DepartmentID })
            </td>
        </tr>
    }  </table>

Description: Run the application, the department object list get randomly sorted and displayed on the page.
