I have a list of users who are using the application then which word is correct? user's list or users list


1 Answer 1


It's "user list" or "list of users". Consider the common phrases "grocery list" and "to-do list". The words "user", "grocery", and "to-do" in "____ list" function like adjectives, they qualify the word "list". What is it a list of? It's a list of users. What type of list is it? It's a user list.

  • And what about "count" and "length"? Am I naming the following variables correctly? userCount (count of users), childCount (count of children), userArrayLength (length of the array of the users), childArrayLength (length of the array of the children).
