    Hi all,

    So I got a chest with ItemMeta
    ItemStack is = new ItemStack(Material.CHEST, 1);
    ItemMeta im = is.getItemMeta();
    im.setDisplayName(ChatColor.RED + "Tier " + args[0] + " chest.");
    and in my inventoryOpenEvent:
        public void onInventoryOpenEvent(InventoryOpenEvent event){
            if (event.getInventory().getHolder() instanceof Chest){
                Chest chest = (Chest) event.getInventory().getHolder();
                //How can I get the chest's ItemMeta?
    But how can I get the chests itemmeta?

    Oh, I think i've figured it out ;)

    doesn't work :(

    Once the item is placed as a block it's no longer an item and doesn't have ItemMeta... it turns into a tile entity which holds specific data related to the block... for example, chests' tile entity hold an array of items that are stored in it and probably the title of the inventory.

    I'm not sure if renamed chests use the name in the inventory name, but if it does then you can use getInventory().getTitle() and compare that.
