Solved Changing DisplayName of dropped item

  1. Hey all,

    I've successfully created a code snippet in which checks if a certain block is broken and then changes the dropped item to a custom one, in this case CLAY_BRICK. My problem lies in the naming of said dropped item.
    Code (Java):
        public void onBreak(BlockBreakEvent event) {
             Player player = event.getPlayer();
             Block block = (Block) event.getBlock();
             if (block.getTypeId() == 247) {
                    ItemStack droppedBlock;
                droppedBlock = new ItemStack(Material.CLAY_BRICK, 1);
                event.getBlock().getWorld().dropItem(event.getBlock().getLocation(), new ItemStack(droppedBlock));
                 ItemMeta m = droppedBlock.getItemMeta();
                m.setDisplayName("Copper Ingot");

    I know don't scream at me for using item ID's but thats besides the point, I have no idea why it doesn't want to change the name of the item, you help is much appreciated.
  2. Maybe you need to set that before drop it.
