Here's a start, maybe?

This is done by editing the properties of the dashed line. Select the line, properties panel, stroke, style, click the pencil, then alter the dash length and space length.

Example attached.

The shape that you want to have the marquee effect applied to: is it something that's already drawn in Flash or something that you're creating via ActionScript?
