    Best way to animate a line with a dot leading along a path

    kim shep

      I need to animate a line along a path with a circle in front of it. Basically an 'i' path with the tail extending. Similar to the shape in this image http://www.ravishankar.me/images/intro/skelta-connect2.png

       

      Ive tried:

       

      Using and animating a shape tween, its very time consuming and would only really work without the dot

      Using a mask doesnt seem to work either as its not a basic line

      And making it a symbol on a path in a motion tween also doesnt follow the line to how i need it

       

      Any suggestions please!?
