i posted this to a thread a while ago, and was just looking for it to reference for someone else.
thought it might benefit others , so posting a copy here, to be found easier.

draws 4 different types of non horizontal lines after the last bar, diagonal, curve, sinewave

Ruby:
``````# formulaafterlastbar_00C

def na = Double.NaN;
def bn = BarNumber();
def lastbar = !IsNaN(close[0]) and IsNaN(close[-1]);
def lastbarbn = if lastbar then bn else lastbarbn[1];

input formula_bars = 50;

# ref signal , close of last bar
def lastcls = if lastbar then close
else if (bn < lastbarbn or bn > (lastbarbn + formula_bars)) then na
else lastcls[1];

input plot_horz_line_after = yes;
