I have code to highlight previous day Open High Low Close. I need a help to draw horizontal line or highlight previous 15 mins candle open high low close. Is there any code snippet available for that?

Thanks,
Syed

@Lees See if this works.

Code:
#Fifteen Minute OHLC

plot o = open(period = aggregationperiod.FIFTEEN_MIN)[1];
     o.setpaintingstrategy(paintingstrategy.horizontal);
     o.setdefaultcolor(color.orange);
plot h = high(period = aggregationperiod.FIFTEEN_MIN)[1];
     h.setpaintingstrategy(paintingstrategy.horizontal);
     h.setdefaultcolor(color.green);
plot l = low(period = aggregationperiod.FIFTEEN_MIN)[1];
     l.setpaintingstrategy(paintingstrategy.horizontal);
     l.setdefaultcolor(color.red);
plot c = close(period = aggregationperiod.FIFTEEN_MIN)[1];
     c.setpaintingstrategy(paintingstrategy.horizontal);
     c.setdefaultcolor(color.yellow);

Thanks for the repsponse @Pensar. I am seeing horizontal lines on all 15 mins candles. I want horizontal line only on Previous 15 min candle OHCL when current 15 mins candle is developing. Once current 15 mins completes horizontal line has to be moved here while new 15 mins candle developing.

Hello Pensar, is it possible to get these lines to extend to the left and to the right over a 2 day period to include premarket and post market candle data, as well as to show the price values? Thanks.

i just joined and am looking for something similar in my last post, except for the daily time frame, not 15 min. I've got it so only the previous day has extended lines. if that's what you're looking for feel free to copy my code!

EDIT:
#
input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.day;
input length = 1;
input displace = -1;
input showLastPeriod = no;
plot PrevDayClose;
if showLastPeriod and !IsNaN(close(period = aggregationPeriod)[-1]) { PrevDayClose = Double.NaN;
} else { PrevDayClose = Highest(close(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
}
PrevDayClose.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(9));
PrevDayClose.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

i just found this while trying to fix my issue, hope this helps!
