Help:: Drawing diagnal lines in flash with gradient overlay?

hey all,
this is prob an easy thing or maybe not. i want to recreate the generally overused 45 degree diagnal lines with gradient ovelay in Flash. It is simple in Photoshop as you just create a pattern with a diagnol line and then fill pattern and do a gradient overlay to make the effect.

Is there a way to do this in flash like i see so many sites with, or are people just using bitmap files in their flash files from photoshop?
