    Unhappy JavaScript question if anyone can help. What's wrong with my code?

    I am new to coding and am not sure what is wrong with my current code. Currently i'm using HTML and JS. Here is what I'm trying to do: Create a random number generator from values 1-4. I want the generator to initiate when a submit button is pressed. I get the generator to work and appear on the document however, once I try to switch it to the submit button it stops working. Any help would be highly appreciated. Here is what I have thus far:

    <html>
    <body>
    <textarea rows="1" cols="25" id="option1">
    </textarea>
    <textarea rows="1" cols="25" id="option2">
    </textarea>
    <textarea rows="1" cols="25" id="option3">
    </textarea>
    <textarea rows="1" cols="25" id="option4">
    </textarea>
    <button id="clickme" name="subject" type="submit" value="Submit">Submit</button>

    <p></p>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var random = Math.floor(Math.random()*5)
    var number = function(random);
    $(".clickme").click(number) {
    if(number == 0 || number == 5) {
    document.write("Still thinking...Click again.");
    }
    else
    {
    document.write(number);
    }
    </script>
    </body>
    </html>

    Welcome! Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful info for new members.

    Just so you know, JavaScript is not Java. Moving thread to the appropriate sub-forum.

    Please give your threads meaningful titles that describe what your post is about, what you're asking for help with. "Unit?"
