Create a macro or system variable (e.g., could be "$timeslidervalue") and when used in a custom TextBox the current current time-slider value would be displayed as part of the regular text appearing in the TextBox. Suggest that this be a higher priority than the Windows Titles (see #296) since when displaying in DashBoard mode, the Window title will disappear. Use of the TextBox also allow for greater flexibility in creating titles or other annotations and positioning them where best suited (which might not always be at the top of the Chart, Graph, etc.).

Attached is an example session state that uses a macro.

The relevant part in the session state is:

<macros encoding="dynamic">
  <LinkableFunction name="dimensionSliderValue">DimensionSliderTool.dimensionSliderValue</LinkableFunction>

and the macro is accessed in the annotation as {dimensionSliderValue}. We still need a GUI for creating macros (#614).
