For my automated system, I also paint Stoplosses and take profits on the chart, if my strategies enters a position. So if I scroll back the I can see where the stopp loss price and take profit price lies.
If I click randomly across the chart, the SL and TP lines are  are extended unexpected.
Code how the trendlines are drawn:
          if (PAINT_ON_CHART=1) then             // Paint SL und TP Line                  
                SL_LineID=tl_new(d, t, BuyLong_SLPrice, d, t+500, BuyLong_SLPrice);
                TP_LineID=tl_new(d, t, BuyLong_TPPrice, d, t+500, BuyLong_TPPrice);
Just create a stragegy with a lot of entries and draw trendlines for SL and TP and click around the chart. You will see the lines are extended to the clicked position.
See attached pic.
