Hi, I do such things from the program itself, but here is a building block without gui:

public class Stopwatch
{
   /**
    * Records the start time for <B>Sy.startWatch()</B>, <B>Sy.lapWatch()</B> & <B>Sy.stopwatch()</B>.
    */
   private static long clockStart = 0;

   /**
    * Records the lap time for <B>Sy.startWatch()</B>, <B>Sy.lapWatch()</B> & <B>Sy.stopwatch()</B>.
    */
   private static long clockLap = 0;


   /**
    * Starts the clock for elapsed time measurements.
    * <P>
    * Records the current time. For a closed interval call <B>Sy.stopWatch()</B>,<BR>
    * for repeated intervals call <B>Sy.lapWatch()</B>.
    * </P>
    */
   public static void startWatch()
   {
      clockStart = clockLap = System.currentTimeMillis();
   }


   /**
    * Measures the elapsed time since the last <B>Sy.startWatch()</B>.
    * <P>
    * Also the time is set for the next <B>Sy.lapWatch()</B> call.
    * </P>
    *
    * @return    The # of milliSeconds.
    */
   public static long stopWatch()
   {
      return((clockLap = System.currentTimeMillis()) - clockStart);
   }


   /**
    * Measures the elapsed time between successive calls.
    * <P>
    * For this method the clock seems to be reset at any previous call to<BR>
    * <B>Sy.startWatch()</B>, <B>Sy.lapWatch()</B> or <B>Sy.stopWatch()</B>.
    * </P>
    *
    * @return    The # of milliseconds.
    */
   public static long lapWatch()
   {
   long now = System.currentTimeMillis();
   long lap = now - clockLap;

      clockLap = now;
      return(lap);
   }
}
