So the idea is to put the time and a tab before each line in the field 
after adding the duration to the StartTime? If that's the case, you can 
do:

on mouseUp
  put fld "myField" into tNames
  put fld "StartTime" into tTime
  convert tTime to dateItems
  add fld "Add" to item 5 of tTime
  convert tTime to time
  repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines of tNames
    put (tTime & ":" & tab) before line x of tNames
  end repeat
  put tNames into fld "myField"
end mouseUp

Enjoy!
