Polygon Count

How do I get the ploygon count of an object to display onscreen? I knew this once but can’t remember.

I still don’t know what a polygon is in 3D-world, but if you go into Object mode and have your model selected, you can view the number of vertices and faces to the right of the top bar (above your 3D-window). If you go to the Edit buttons you can also view the number of triangles in the Decimator slider.

or you could use this: https://blenderartists.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=39653&highlight=python+script+count

Thanks for that; must be getting blind in my old age!
