Just create axes at this position and a patch in there. Set xlim to [0 1] and update the xdata of the patch over progress:
figure, ha=axes('xlim',[0 1],'ylim',[0 1],'xtick',[],'ytick',[],'box','on');
hp=patch([0 0 0 0],[0 0 1 1],'r');
for cnt=1:100
set(hp,'xData',[0 cnt/100 cnt/100 0])

Drag and drop is an open problem in Matlab. You could use an ActiveX control under Windows, but you did not specify if the code must be platform-independent.
