I have an object that I get through the following line of code:

  
dropped = GetDragObject(msg);  

I know it is a tag, since it passed the following test:

  
if (instanceof(dropped,BaseTag))  

I also know it is a material tag since it passed the following test:

  
if(dropped->GetType() == 5616)  

Now, how can I get the name of the material that is assigned to the tag?
I tried using this code:

  
matmarker1=dropped->GetMaterial();  
mat = doc->GetFirstMaterial();  
while(mat&&(matmarker2=mat->GetMarker())!=matmarker1)mat=mat->GetNext();  

But this NEVER finds anything. What am I doing wrong? Samir as been helping me but we are getting nowhere 😞
I need to get the name of the material!! Please help.
Thank you very much in advance.
