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:
a timer that show the second in real time of the stock market, in the top left corner
 
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.
