Try this:

on mouseUp
  answer file "Choose a textfile" with filter "*.txt" # select a file
from a folder
  put it into ChosenFile                                              #
i.e. path + file
  put "file:"&Chosenfile into URLfile                 # create format
for URL downloading
  put URL URLfile into fld "Textdisplay"
end mouseUp
