ShowOnlyLastPeriod for monthly hi low question

hello i was wondering if someone could help me make this indicator a ShowOnlyLastPeriod. I looked at other thinkscripts to try and figure it out but i am not very good at coding and have minimal experience. any help is much appreciated!

input ShowOnlyLastPeriod = Yes;
plot mthHi = high(period = AggregationPeriod.MONTH)[1];
plot mthLo = low(period = "MONTH")[1];

mthHi.SetPaintingStrategy (PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
mthLo.SetPaintingStrategy (PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
when i asked on thinkscript lounge they told me this to help:
"When you mean 'show only last period'; you may be thinking off If IsNaN(close[-1] and !IsNaN(close) to figure out when the expansion area starts and your current period ends."
Just so we're on the same page, you want to display only last month's high and low rather than all the monthly highs and lows, correct?
