Random GUID (v4) Generator With jQuery

A simple and easy online tool that allows you to generate GUIDs in the v4 format (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-4xxx-Nxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx where N is one of 8,9,A, or B), which can be used as an identifier for your website or application.

The GUIDs are guaranteed to be unique and random, which means that they will not repeat themselves even after you have generated millions of them.

<form action="#">
  <div class="mb-3 mt-3">
    <label for="comment">GUID(s)</label>
    <textarea class="form-control mb-3" rows="5" id="guid-data" name="guid-data"></textarea>

  <div class="mb-5">
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col-6">
      <label for="quantity">Quantity</label>

          <option value="100">100</option>
          <option value="500">500</option>
          <option value="1000">1,000</option>
      <div class="col-6">
        <div class="form-check form-check-inline">
          <input class="form-check-input" type="checkbox" id="uppcase" name="uppcase" value="1">
          <label class="form-check-label" for="uppcase">Uppercase</label>
        <div class="form-check form-check-inline">
          <input class="form-check-input" type="checkbox" id="hyphens" name="hyphens" value="1" checked>
          <label class="form-check-label" for="hyphens">Hyphens</label>
  <a href="#" class="btn btn-success mr-1" id="generate-guid">Generate</a>
  <a href="#" class="btn btn-dark text-white copy-btn" data-clipboard-target="#guid-data">
