Assuming we have a long list of graphs to be shown by ListAnimate, we want to locate some interesting ones. Then a counter or slider label for that long list is necessary to keep track of which graph we are viewing.

Searching through the documentation, I cannot find any option to achieve this and this nice post works only for Animate. Is there a way?

You can use Manipulate as follows instead:

list = Range[100];
Manipulate[list[[i]], {i, 1, Length[list], 1}]

Click on the "+" on the right of the control bar and you see further controls and an input field including the frame number.
