TOS Draw Horizontal Line at Current Price Indicator needed


I am looking for a simple indicator that draws a horizontal line across chart at current price.

very similar to the ninjatrader indicator

any help would greatly be appreciated.

I found this free TOS indicator online and it is real close to what I'm looking for but fails to draw across complete chart

# Close Extended Line
# From within the script settings panel, change the value of lineLength to extend the line further if desired.

input lineLength = 4;
def barNumber = BarNumber();
def barCount = HighestAll(If(IsNaN(close), 0, barNumber));
def closeLine = if barNumber == 1 then Double.NaN else if barNumber == barCount - lineLength then close[-lineLength] else if barNumber == barCount then Double.NaN else closeLine[1];
plot data = closeLine;
here is the link to the above code illustrating indicator in action
Fun with ThinkScript

thanks for any help

Currrent price line can be made directly in NinjaTrader

In the meantime I have found a solution directly from NinjaTrader:
how do I draw a horizontal price line? - NinjaTrader Support Forum

Here is the video that explains how to do it: 2015-08-06_0713 - NT_Paul's library

This works also in NT8.

Best regards
