Default catching and displaying errors?

A component connects to the server and does stuff if the server is down the flash debug player shows ioerror. I try various methods in the mx:script area and in the first method flex says err cannot be found and in the second method compoent_name cannot be found. It is a pure procedural code and there are no classes whatsover. Anybody knows what is wrong here?
ActionScript Code:
var err:IOError;             var err_msg:String=err.toString();             //err_msg=err.toString();             if(err.message.length>0){                 labelmessage1.text= "error has occured";                             }
2nd method:
ActionScript Code:
try {                   compoent_name.source="http://server...";                               } catch (err:IOError) {                                     labelmessage1.text= "error has occured try again";             }

Is this a Flex component, or a custom component you have written?

Generally your component will need to catch the IOError at the point in code it ocurs and rethrow a new error so that you can pick it up from your code.
