Hide TrendLine

I have several Support and Resistance lines on my chart drawn with the TOS Trendline tool. Is there a way to hide/show all of them with code? I don't want to delete them just hide them temporarily! Thank you for your input and suggestions in advance!

@jphilli11 As the OP stated there is no script involved so no script that can be modified.
The ToS Trendline Tool is manually drawn.
Thinkscript does not provide us any means of writing studies that will be interactive with the platform-controlled elements such as the drawing tools or any ThinkOrSwim modules... Custom modifications are beyond the scope of the capabilities of the platform...
I’m not familiar with this tool but it should be pretty simple to do. Here are my suggested step:
1) Start by opening the source script and either save as new or manually copy and paste into a new script.
2) Save as support and resistance custom
3) open new script and add:
Input Show_Trendlines = yes;
4) find the plots for the trendlines add add the following to each:
Plotname.sethiding(!show_trendlines);


Now you should have an input in the settings to show or hide the plots.

Hope this answers your question.

Unfortunately I think MerryDay may be correct. It is not a script I'm running to set the trendline but rather the thinkorswim trendline tool which i use to manually draw the line on the chart.
 
Save as a new drawing set (bottom right). Anything that is on your chart when you save the drawing set will be saved, i.e. channels, trend lines, price levels etc. After you save it you can switch back to "default" and delete the trend lines etc for a clean chart.

Alternatively you can create a drawing set before you draw the trend lines.
