New Time Step Progress Bar Filter and Associated Representation

As of ParaView 5.2, a new filter called “Time Step Progress Bar” will appear in ParaView.

When visible in the pipeline, this filter (not a source) displays a nice progress bar in the RenderView showing the animation progress.

As usual the widget can be set interactive and the user can change its colors – for both the progress bar and the optional background.

This new feature has been made possible in ParaView thanks to the new classes that were added to VTK (vtkProgressBarRepresentation and vtkProgressBarWidget).
