Timer with Status Bar

Implementation of a status bar (progress bar) using patches.

Last year, while using guide to build a GUI, I noticed that there is not a status bar component. So, since I knew how to create rectangles using patches, I thought I would try to create a status bar.
I started by placing an axes inside the figure. I created a timer that can go up to two minutes. Based on the elapsed time and the total time in the timer (which the user can select), I removed the previous rectangle and then patched a new one. The process continued until the time limit was met, or until the user pressed the Stop button.
