How to get the width / height of an element in Photoshop?

This is something I always wondered about but never really asked. Say I have a rectangle box, image or other element in photoshop, when I make the desired element active and I check the info panel, The width / height never shows up - Should it?

"When you make a selection, the 'Info' panel should show the width (W:) and height (H:) of the selection. It has to be the active selection, though.

Note: The active selection ""marching ants"" don't show up in the screen capture."

Press 'Command-T' to transform the current layer. That will also show it's width and height in the info panel, as per Robert's answer (but more convenient).
