I have a grid displayed in my app, and the app can show 10 rows of data at a time. At the bottom of the grid it provides buttons for left and right to browse through the data.

What is the best wording for letting the user know which rows are being shown?

Currently I have:

BackBtn-NextBtn Showing 1-10 from 56 items

Please let me know if the above is correct or what's a better way to express it.

    The preposition normally used is of, not from. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Apr 29 '19 at 18:09
  • If you are being very explicit in the wording, I would replace the dash with "to": Showing 1 to 10 of 56 items – user323578 Apr 29 '19 at 18:19

Options:

  • Record: |< < 1-10 of 56 > >|
  • Row: |< < 1-10 of 56 > >|

    How is this answering the OP's request for verbiage?? – Cascabel Apr 29 '19 at 18:15

    How is it not? I have graphically represented the situation described in the question with two choices of the correct wording. As Janus says in the comment - "The preposition normally used is of, not from". – David D Apr 29 '19 at 19:07
