trouble getting text from a text field

on clicked theObject
tell window “main”
tell tab view “nametab”
set the char_name to the content of text field “Charname”
end tell
end tell

when I run this script I get this error and have no idea where I am messing up.

I would appreciate any help. This is my first program and I am really frustrated.

Thanks in advance
