vertical line at the middles of the bar

I added a vertical line to indicate how far to the newest bar with below code:
Code:
def last_bar = HighestAll(if !IsNaN(close) then BarNumber() else Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY);

AddVerticalLine((last_bar - BarNumber() == 5) , 5, Color.ORANGE, Curve.SHORT_DASH);
However, the vertical line appear at the left hand side of the bar.
Is there any chance that I could move the line to the middle of the bar? Using same code for 1min/5min/day/week chart

Thanks in advance~

Nice work ...
I have the slimier scripts ... just wondering is it possible to make the vertical line thicker ? I tried but did not work ....
Here is one workaround the addverticalline() lack of functionality using the above code and adding clouds and the unsupported addchart() that Joshua mentioned.

Ruby:
def last_bar = HighestAll(if !IsNaN(close) then BarNumber() else Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY);

AddVerticalLine((last_bar - BarNumber() == 5) , 5, Color.ORANGE, Curve.SHORT_DASH);


#Workaround Cloud between vertical lines using addchart()

def inbar  = last_bar - BarNumber() == 6;
def outbar = last_bar - BarNumber() == 5;


def h = Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY;
def l = Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY;
def xoutbar  = if outbar...
Unfortunately, that's just how it works. There is an alternative way to do it, but it involves an undocumented unsupported function which crashes the client if used incorrectly. Perhaps after the market closes I'll give it a go and let you know what I come up with.

Brilliant workaround idea .... thank you .... i have been trying, could not figure out a way for limited functionality .... job done ... thanks
 
Here is another option as well.

Ruby:
def Last_bar = HighestAll(
    if !IsNaN(close)
    then BarNumber()
    else Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY
);
def Target_bar = last_bar - BarNumber() == 5;
def DPI = if Target_bar then Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY else Double.NAN;
def DNI = if Target_bar then Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY else Double.NAN;
AddChart(DPI, DNI, 0, 0, ChartType.CANDLE,Color.ORANGE);

Again, take caution with AddChart(), especially the chart type parameter.
