Looking For A Dynamic Price Indicator Line

Hi I was wondering if anyone could quickly help me combine two scripts?
the first tracks price more accurately. I want to use those inputs with the plot options of mobius' code. Here is the first code
----------------
##k_kirill code posted in 2020

input lineLength = 100;

def lastBar = !IsNaN(close) && IsNaN(close[-1]);
def lastClose = if lastBar then close else lastClose[1];

plot PriceIndicatorLine = if IsNaN(close[-lineLength - 1]) then lastClose[-lineLength] else Double.NaN;
PriceIndicatorLine.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
PriceIndicatorLine.SetDefaultColor(Color.CYAN);
----------------

the second has has better options to plot the script. I would like to able to edit the line style (ie. color, weight, style, length) before and after the the current candle.

input LineLimit = 100;

def bar = if IsNaN(c) then Double.NaN else BarNumber;
def ThisBar = HighestAll(bar);
def cline = if bar == ThisBar then c else Double.NaN;
def condi = CompoundValue(1, if IsNaN(c) then condi [1] else c, c);
plot P = if ThisBar - LineLimit <= bar then HighestAll (cline) else Double.NaN;
P.SetStyle(Curve.SHORT_DASH);
P.SetLineWeight(1);
P.SetDefaultColor(CreateColor(75, 250, 150));
plot ExpLine = if OnExpansion and barNumber < HighestAll (bar + OnExpansionLimit) and IsNaN(c) then condi else Double.NaN;
ExpLine.SetStyle(Curve.SHORT_DASH);
ExpLine.SetLineWeight(1);
ExpLine.SetDefaultColor(CreateColor(150, 150, 150));

Here is the price line before (expansion area) and after (chart). There is no line at the price bar. You can make adjustments to each separately.

input lineLength = 100;

def lastBar   = !IsNaN(close) && IsNaN(close[-1]);
def lastClose = if lastBar then close else lastClose[1];

plot linebefore = if IsNaN(close[0]) 
                 then lastClose[0]

plot lineafter = if IsNaN(close[1]) or lastClose >= lastClose[-lineLength]

                 else lastClose[-lineLength];
lineafter.SetStyle(Curve.LONG_DASH);

lineafter.SetDefaultColor(Color.WHITE);

You indicated 'style' as one of your requests. The following are the 'setstyle()' choices. However, these are not selectable and you will have to input them in the code.

Curve​

In this section you will find information on the constants used with SetStyle function to define the style of curve to be plotted.

Choose your constant from the list:

The more selectable 'style' is setpaintingstrategy().
