I have performed a selection by expression (Attribute table) on a layer that contains thousands of features. I would like to know the number of features in this selection.

    Does it not tell you at the top of the Attribute Table? – Joseph Aug 9 '16 at 13:35

    If the only place you could select features was the attribute table, then it would make sense for # of selected features to only display there. However, it is possible to select features by expression (or manually) directly from map display, and so it should probably also be displayed either in the sidebar next to the layers or in the status bar below the map. – J.

Look at the header of the attribute table, it tells you the total number of objects in tables, as well as the filtered and selected ones.
