How to draw lines with API measure command?

When making measurements it is very helpful to draw a line between the two selected points or between the measured results.  These lines are important to provide verification that the measured results are correct.

 

The API measure command is a good command but it is surprising that the command doesn't also provide the lines as shown below:

I have looked but have not been able to find an option for this.

 

The nest best approach is to use the selection points draw our own lines.  Is there a command set to do this?

 

The measure command returns an X, Y, Z values and DeltaX, DeltaY,  DeltaZ (the measured results).  I have made a number of attempts to use these values to draw these "reference" lines within both assembly and part model spaces without success.  Is there a way to "translate" these values into something useful?
