Create a static text somewhere i the GUI and set the string to "busy" before runing simumation tjen "done" once finished.
You can also set the figure 'pointer' property to 'watch' then 'arrow'.

Note: I suggest using an onCleanup() to ensure that you remove the busy status if the activity is stopped (whether by user activity or by crash.)

Have you considered using waitbar()? (You are not required to update the estimated fraction complete)
waitbar() also has an alternative way of drawing the bar so that it is more like a "barber pole" rather than fraction complete. At the moment I do not recall the configuration method... I think it involves Java properties.
