How to extend each price line fully to the left and right

Salutations,

Let me first say how glad I am to have found this Brotherhood, and I am grateful to now be apart of it! I hope to add value, quickly, one day soon.
----------------------------------------------

Now, my problem is that I cannot get the lines to extend fully (or as far as possible) to the left and right at the same time for the levels (high,low, open, close) that are automatically generated. Could someone please help me achieve this? I have been working for days on and off and I cannot figure this out to save my life! I have inserted the code in question below.
input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.YEAR;
input length = 1;
input displace = -0;
input showOnlyLast100Period = yes;
input barsBack = 100;

plot DailyHigh;
plot DailyLow;
plot DailyOpen;
plot DailyClose;
if showOnlyLast100Period and !IsNaN(close(period = aggregationPeriod)[-100]) {
DailyHigh = barsBack;
DailyLow = Double.NaN;
DailyOpen = Double.NaN;
DailyClose = Double.NaN;
} else {
DailyHigh = Highest(high(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
DailyLow = Lowest(low(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
DailyOpen = Highest(open(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
DailyClose = Lowest(close(period = aggregationPeriod)[-displace], length);
}

DailyHigh.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
DailyHigh.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
DailyLow.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
DailyLow.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
DailyClose.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
DailyClose.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
DailyOpen.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(4));
DailyOpen.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

hello,
i am not sure what you want to see on a chart.
you are using a 2nd agg of year, on a year chart,... so different data will exist on every bar.
why are you using an offset of -100 ?? that means look 100 years into the future... that bar doesn't exist.

can you describe what you think you want to see?
chart time, which bars have lines.

do you want to see horizontal lines from every single bar on a chart ? not practical. a study would need 100s of plot statements.


if the chart is set to day, then you will see lines extend over many bars, for a year.

First off, thank you for your reply.

To get straight to the point. I want to be able to take the past HLOC for each bar of the aggregation periods Year, Month from the past 3 years, and display them on the a Week (aggregation period) trading chart as well as a Day (aggregation) trading chart as dashed white lines that extend as far as possible from left to right (most recent bar on chart).
