You can create a headsUpDisplay and connect to whatever you want (if I understood correctly what you are looking for!)

import maya.cmds as mc
from functools import partial

def getResult(obj):
    myDistance = mc.getAttr('%s.distance' % obj)
    return myDistance
startLocator = mc.spaceLocator(p=[0, 0, 0])
endLocator = mc.spaceLocator(p=[10, 0, 0])
myDistanceDimension = mc.distanceDimension(startLocator, endLocator)

mc.headsUpDisplay( 'debugMe', section=1, block=0, blockSize='medium', label='Distance', labelFontSize='large', command=partial(getResult, myDistanceDimension), event='idle')

#mc.headsUpDisplay( 'debugMe', rem=True )
