leave empty space on a plot on the left of screen

Hello,

I'm building a sort of pivot indicator with plots as lines.

I'd like to leave an open space on the left of my screen on the left of the levels plotted as lines. It should be left empty wherever you browse through historical data.

I tried this code (interesting part in bold). But can't make it work. Can you help me ? Thank you

 
Code
if (CurrentBar<1) return;
            AAA.Set(1);
 for (int i=CurrentBar-ChartControl.FirstBarPainted;i>CurrentBar-ChartControl.FirstBarPainted-7;i--) PlotColors[0][i] = Color.Empty; 
        }
        #region Properties
        [Browsable(false)]
        [XmlIgnore()]
        public DataSeries AAA
        {
            get { return Values[0]; }
        }

I need that because I have labels on the left of my levels and I don't want to offset them vertically because when you zoom out labels + levels become a mess.

I just need a trick to solve this problem, whatever it might be.

Thanks for your help

Maybe you can use parts of the SessionPivots indicator here:

https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader-7/indicators/371-download.html?view

It has a modified plot override method, which allows to select the width of the pivot lines and plot labels to the right or to the left of those lines.
