Show secounds in bubble.

If you look at the Video, the trader has a timer that show the second in real time of the stock market, in the top left corner, showing in orange and black.
Can we do such a thing preferably in a bubble or label?

There is nothing built-in that TOS has to do a countdown timer. TOS did one for tick charts to countdown ticks, but not time charts.

Here is a link to a thread here that has many third party products that mostly don't work well, as you have to manually try to sync them with your chart. https://usethinkscript.com/threads/countdown-to-bar-close-in-thinkorswim.1056/post-45035

SecondsFromTime and SecondsTillTime are functions used within studies, scans, and watchlists.
Thinkscript does not provide us any means of writing studies that will be interactive with the platform-controlled elements or any ThinkOrSwim modules... Therefore it is not possible create a:

What about these, they count time.

SecondsFromTime
SecondsTillTime
those functions count seconds, but in multiples of the chart time. they won't increment on every second.
if you have a 1 minute chart time, once a minute, they are updated to the actual time. the other 59 seconds, they will be equal to the last value when it was updated.
