    The Random Value Generator widget is currently hidden in your form, so the value is not being copied to the textbox.

    To copy the value to a textbox while still keeping the widget hidden, we will need to hide it using the wizard.

    The value should now be passed successfully to your textbox. You can remove the label of the widget so the widget will not be seen completely.
