Hi Angel,

Probably the best way of doingthis is as follows, use a mask layer. In layer
1 you draw your line (make it a symbol) . In layer 2 you draw a rectangle
that covers the line (make sure that it is filled ) and make that a symbol
too . You now have two layers with one symbol each in it . The top layer
with the rectangular box in it will become the mask . To make it a mask ,
click on the triangle next to the layer name (layer 2) Select mask . You now
have a mask covering the line . All you need to do now is to move the
rectangle on the stage: say 10 frames down you insert a keyframe, and move
the symbol to the right until it no longer covers the line. Click on frame 1
and add motion tweening. Voila, you now will see the line appear gradually
when you push test movie .

If this is what you wanted, but have more questions, mail me personally, I
will gladly make a small .fla for you and mail it to you.


Hope this helps,

Ben
