Here's an example of how you would do this as part of a button handler, 
assuming the field you wanted the text to appear in was named "Field":

on mouseUp
   put "This is a test" into field "Field"
end mouseUp

If you wanted the text to display on a line other than the first line 
of the field the statekment would read:

put "This is a test" into line 2 of field "Field"

And, if you wanted the text to display as soon as the card is 
displayed, then you would place the put statement into an on OpenCard 
handler either at card level or stack level (latter if it were to 
appear in this field on every card in the stack).
