Evaluate Distance in a specific direction

How can I evaluate distance in a specified direction using featurescript?
MB - I make FeatureScripts: view FS (My FS's have "Official" beside them)

    I ended up making a Plane, then projecting the point to the plane then evaluating the point. I then used evDistance between the two Vectors

    I can propose to use the Line as one of the sides in evDistance.
