but i can not used textbox object as user having can edit or delete the text.


It won't happen if you set the property "Read-Only" to "Yes". It still displays text, but the user can't modify it.
Mixing it with the "Enabled" property set to "No", you possibly can prevent the user from interacting at all with/during the display and still have the effect you're looking for.
New to Construct ? Where to start

OK, I just can't seem to let this 1 go. Here is a way to do it. Use a "ShowCursor" variable and when the cursor should be shown, append "|" (the pipe symbol). See the attached edited version. Use a timer to define when the ShowCursor is set to true.

[Edit] added a basic version. The first version has some functions that may not be clear but only uses 2 events instead of 5.

I'm not rolling back my version of Construct just to get you an example. Instead, here is a screenshot of the events:
