Here is a script to get your local IP address and store it in a field:

local testSock

on mouseUp
  put line 1 of hostnametoaddress("")& ":80|testSocket" \
      into testSock
  open socket to testSock with message "socketReady"
end mouseUp

on socketReady pSock
  put hostAddress(pSock) into fld "Local IP address"
  close socket testSock
end socketReady
