Draw line with measurement on it

Sorry all I am not a pro at this, I just have a few images to draw and need to get this out to my grandmother.
I am drawing a 2 dimension desk to match an old broken desk. I have to draw it with the measurements on each edge

I know I can draw the lines then measure them, then with the text tool type in the measurements. I was wondering if there is
a way of it automatically putting the measurement next to the line as I draw the line, and then a second measurement as I
make corners.

After drawing the lines, use the Dimension tools to create the
dimensions, as separate objects. AutoCAD does not have a
line-and-dimension combination object or method of drawing.
