PriorDayOHLC and CurrentDay - help in modifying the display


Can anyone can help me how to modify PriorDayOHLC and CurrentDay indicator to achieve the effect as in the attached images?

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

expected result:
Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

The problem is:
- I want to see just YH, YL, YC and TodayLow (L), TodayHigh (H), Open (O).
- I want these values have been tagged in such a way that the line began from the moment in which occurred (per unit of time and location)
- I want to that should be dragged to the end of the time axis or the current price bar.
- Good if such a line had shown the value of the price on the value axis.
- I do not want to see the other values, only values of yesterday and today.

Is it possible to somehow transform these indicators?
As you can see in the picture "before" I'm trying to cheat program to display only the last value for PriorDayOHLC and CurrentDay by setting PlotStyle = Hline.
But then these lines go through the whole chart and not from where it occurred ...

I will be grateful for your help.

I use similar indicators.

The anaPivotsDaily indicator can be used to display yesterday's close (at your choice: settlement price taken from daily data or last price traded) and yesterday's high and low (at your choice: ETH or RTH high and low). You just need to set all plots which you do not require to transparent.

The anaCurrentDayOHL displays the open, high and low of the current session (at your choice: ETH or RTH high and low).

The only thing these indicators do not do is to connect to the highs and lows as you wish. The lines are displayed for the current session, the width of the lines is selectable.

If you want an indicator that does exactly connect to the highs and lows, it would require to hold the actual bar indices of those high and low bars in separate Arraylists and then acces these values via a modification of the custom plot. This is feasible but requires advanced custom coding.

Chart with the indicator added attached. Lines are there, but the connection point is not what you look for.
