Implements

IDistribution.GetRangeValue()

Remarks

This method randomly generates a value that is between 0.0 and 1.0 and that represents a point on the distribution curve. Values that are less than 0.0 or more than 1.0 produce undefined results. This method is called once for each row of data that is generated. The more rows of data that are generated, the more closely the data approximates the distribution curve. The value that this method returns is scaled by the generator that uses it, based on the Min and Max properties that the user specifies, and converted to the type of the data that is being generated.

This method calls OnGetRangeValue. You should override OnGetRangeValue if you want to override the GetRangeValue functionality.
