[Tag_Name] can be used within a custom tag definition. It returns the name of the tag that is currently executing.

This is particularly useful within the _UnknownTag callback function which is called when an unknown member tag is called for a data type.



[Define_Tag: 'myTag']
[If: (Tag_Name) == 'myTag']

[Define_Type: 'myType']
[Define_Tag: '_UnknownTag']
[Select: Tag_Name]
[Case: 'myTag1']


No Parameters Required.


To get the name of the current executing tag:

Use the [Tag_Name] tag. Within a custom tag [Tag_Name] returns the name under which the current tag was called. In the following example, the tag [myTag] simply returns the name of the tag.

[Define_Tag: 'myTag'][Return: Tag_Name][/Define_Tag]
