I am trying to do this, following the Macromedia example:

Example

This script retrieves text from the URL
[url]http://BigServer.com/sample.txt[/url] and updates the field cast member the
mouse is on when it's clicked:

property spriteNum
property theNetID

on mouseUp me
theNetID = getNetText ("http://BigServer.com/sample.txt")
end

on exitFrame me
if netDone(theNetID) then
sprite(spriteNum).member.text = netTextResult(theNetID)
end if
end


*******************************************

But I dont know much about Director and dont know where the first 2
lines go?

property spriteNum
property theNetID

Thanks - Joe
