	-- if an element was clicked on screen
	if ( clickedElement ) then
		-- retrieve the element type
		local elementType = DGS:dgsGetType ( clickedElement )
		-- change the label text to that element type
		DGS:dgsSetText ( myLabel, elementType )
		-- and place it in the position of where the element is
