everyone. I was making an application for iPad.

It's a music game that you can record and play your tracks by touch the virtual piano keyboard on screen.But in the manage view,i want to remind the player "There is no items on the list" if the list is empty.

But i really didn't know how to express it.

"There is no items here." or "There is no tracks." or "No tracks,please record one." or something else?

Please help me,it drove me crazy.

And sorry for my bad English :-)

Your track list is empty? – StoneyB May 9 '13 at 1:45
Sorry, there are any number of possible answers to this, and we don't do ghostwriting here. And as StoneyB points out, you can use your very own "The list is empty". You used these exact words to explain it to us, so why not use these exact words to explain it to others. No need to invent fancier wordings where four short words will more than suffice. And one thing is for sure: "There is no items" is not an option (colloquial, bordering on ungrammatical). Watch your punctuation, too (a comma must be followed by a whitespace). Better yet, just cut to the chase and have all your text proofread. – RegDwigнt May 9 '13 at 1:54
