Can you expand more on what the trend line drawn from right to left needs to do? Is that right-to-left trend line still drawn on the same bars and price coordinates? Or should that line be drawn on future, yet to form price bars? If so, how should that trend line be updated; extended further into the future or remain in place?

Btw, your current code draws a trend line on historical data and then extends it once on the next bar. Is that what you want it to do? I'm asking because this is something else than I understood from your previous posts in this thread, so there might be a misunderstanding here.

PS: a screenshot with your goal will probably speak more than words.

lets say I want to plot a trendline on bar number 10 ago to bar number 11. Now when I say 10 ago I mean last bar on chart (current bar that has not closed yet - 9) total 10, using currentbar in the last configuration will do the same, except counting from the 1st bar on chart up, and not last bar on chart down. , so the the other one should be( lastbaronchart - 10) It does not work this way.
Sorry, not at home right now.

My interpretation of what you're trying to do is the following:

if (BarStatus(1) = 2) then begin

	if (tlID = 0) then begin
		// Create the trend line 10 & 11 bars ago
		tlID = TL_New_s(Symbol_Date[11], Symbol_Time_s[11], Symbol_Low[11],
			Symbol_Date[10], Symbol_Time_s[10], Symbol_High[10]);
		TL_SetColor(tlID, red);
		TL_SetSize(tlID, 2);
	else begin
		// Now update the trend line so that bar 10 becomes 11,
		// which I guess means the line will always needs to be plotted
		// 10 bars ago from the current
		TL_SetBegin_s(tlID, Symbol_Date[11], Symbol_Time_s[11], Symbol_Low[11]);
		TL_SetEnd_s(tlID, Symbol_Date[10], Symbol_Time_s[10], Symbol_High[10]);	

Which draws the line from High[10] to Low[11], and then updates the trend line on each bar so that the old bar 10 becomes the new bar 11. I'm not sure if this interpretation is correct, because I can also read your screenshot as meaning to say 'keep the trend line on the same bar'.

Here's what the above code looks like:

Then when the code updates, the trend line moves with it, reflecting the 'old bars' becoming 'new bars':
