# JavaScript: Generate a random hexadecimal color code

## JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-11 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to generate a random hexadecimal color code.

• Use Math.random() to generate a random 24-bit (6 * 4bits) hexadecimal number.
• Use bit shifting and then convert it to an hexadecimal string using Number.prototype.toString(16).

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2
// Define a function called `random_hex_color_code` that generates a random hexadecimal color code.
const random_hex_color_code = () => {
// Generate a random number and convert it to hexadecimal string representation.
let n = (Math.random() * 0xfffff * 1000000).toString(16);
// Return the hexadecimal color code with '#' appended.
return '#' + n.slice(0, 6);
};

// Test the function
console.log(random_hex_color_code()); // Output: Random hexadecimal color code
```
```

Output:

```#2375d4
```
