Horizontal Line At Given Value

Hi All,

I'm looking to write a script that plots a horizontal line at a last given value. Currently in the process of learning Thinkscript.

Specifically, I'm trying to add horizontal lines to an ichimoku indicator that will plot, for example, the last value(s) of 'Span A' and 'Span B'.


I have 'Span A' defined as:

def "Span A" = (Tenkan[kijun_period] + Kijun[kijun_period]) / 2;

Now I want to plot the last value for "Span A" as a line across the entire chart.

Any thoughts?

"I have 'Span A' defined as:

def "Span A" = (Tenkan[kijun_period] + Kijun[kijun_period]) / 2;

We need to GetValue("Span A", GetMaxValueOffset("Span A", 1), 0);

and then plot it as a priceLine

At least in theory - I gave it a go but couldn't get it to work below is the code for a horizontal priceline plotting the close of the current bar - I tried adapting it but couldn't get it to work and couldn't spend anymore time on it but left the post here to see if it was any help to you.

plot priceLine = highestAll(if isNan(close[-1]) and !isNAN(close) then close else double.nan);

Good Luck.
