3D selection Question - Macromedia Director 3D

I'm working on a 3d board game, and i cant figure out how to select a model with the mouse and have say a portrait of that character appear onscreen. I have it so the it will put the name of the object into the message window, using the modelunderloc command, but how do I define a custom behavior to react to other 2d things in the forground, and change values in my data files??...

    I conjecture the 2D things in the foreground you talk about are overlays. What
    do you want to display in the foreground ? The name of the object ? How and
    when ? To change values in your data files, you can use the FileIO Xtra
    together with the XML Pr Xtra id your game is to be a Projector. Otherwise,
    for a Shockwave project, you might hold the data in memory only for the
    duration of the game and save them in a database through a call to a server
    side script.
