Simple Thinkscript code to plot highest and lowest price for a given timeframe

I am trying to create code that will automatically create a horizontal line at the highest and lowest price for the morning and afternoon sessions. So basically, between 9:35 AM and 10.05 AM, it would plot 2 lines at the highest and lowest price during that period. And then in the afternoon, it would do the same thing from 12:35 PM to 1:05 PM.

Can anyone help???

Basically something like this :

Sorry, I'm not a very good coder, right now I just have it picking the price as a manual input. Just can't figure out how to do it dynamically :

input Morning_Upper = 3000.1;
input Morning_Lower = 3000.1;
input Aft_Upper = 3000.1;
input Aft_Lower = 3000.1;

plot Mupper = Morning_Upper;
Mupper.SetDefaultColor(Color.YELLOW);
Mupper.SetStyle(Curve.SHORT_DASH);

plot Mlower = Morning_Lower;
Mlower.SetDefaultColor(Color.YELLOW);
Mlower.SetStyle(Curve.SHORT_DASH);

plot Aftupper = Aft_Upper;
Aftupper.SetDefaultColor(Color.BLUE);
Aftupper.SetStyle(Curve.SHORT_DASH);

plot Aftlower = Aft_Lower;
Aftlower.SetDefaultColor(Color.BLUE);
Aftlower.SetStyle(Curve.SHORT_DASH);

This is great.... thank you so much.

Is there any way to extend the dotted lines so that they go across the whole day's range???
