How to view width of a path's stroke in millimeters in Illustrator CS6?


Question

How can I view the width of a path's stroke in millimeters ? I can see the width and height values (see screenshot) in the info bar but these measure the width and height of the whole circle shape. I want to know the width of the stroke in mm. The path is expanded from a type object.

Illustrator version is CS6 Mac

Just invoke MEASURE tool enter image description here

and in info window you can see the measures results continuously while you are clicked-and-dragging over the shape in question.

some add info via adobe (there are a lot of measure tool tutes in youtube as well)
