here is 1 way. you specify 2 dates and times and a price stat ( high, low, close, open) and it draws a lines between the 2 points

this site is an amazing resource with many explained examples
Thank you for your reply.Ruby:declare upper; plot Line = if getYYYYMMDD() == 20210618 then 69.95 else if getYYYYMMDD() == 20210716 then 73 else double.nan; Line.enableApproximation();
Josuha's script was just a great way to use what had been posted previously using dates. As you are now looking for intraday timing, see if this helps.Thank you for your reply.
I'm, not a programmer, but I don't understand why there's any if condition statement based on the date.
I'm looking for a script that draws a line from the close of the bar at a specified time to a time and price. For example, on a one-minute chart draw a line from the close at 9:45 to 4442.70 at 4:00.
Ruby:declare upper; input priceto = 4442.70; plot Line = if getday()==getlastday() then if secondsFromTime(0945)==0 then close else if secondsfromTime(1600)==0 then priceto else double.nan else double.nan; Line.enableApproximation();

Here is one way. Choose extendline and it will plot to the extension to the right edge of the chart.Hi,
Thanks for the code.
May I know how to expand the line to right? I mean once I draw a line between two points, how that can be automatically update as time progress?
Best regards

Thanks again. How can I assign with given two specific dates and prices (let say the first point is 10/01/2021 with price of $100 and the second point is 10/13/2021 and the price is $110) including the line extension.Here is one way. Choose extendline and it will plot to the extension to the right edge of the chart.
Try this modification to the original script above to have a date option added to the time option to plot the line. The pricefrom and priceto can be values or price fundamentals.Thanks again. How can I assign with given two specific dates and prices (let say the first point is 10/01/2021 with price of $100 and the second point is 10/13/2021 and the price is $110) including the line extension.
I appreciate for your help.
Best regards

I have simplified the code so that it should work better on both intraday and daily charts. You will have to specify both date and time info to plot on intraday. Only should need dates for daily charts. The price to/from can be either price values or fundamentals.I copy and pasted the same code that you provided, and change the values for AAPL (141.8 and 144.6) but gave me a straight line all the way back to last year. I used daily timeframe as you had. Could not duplicate yours.

yes, and you will find several examples in this threadHello, Is there a way to plot line with ext between, say... plot x and plot y
