    Wow, that was a long title... Anyways, I basically have my config.yml:

    Code:
    waypoints:
      Spawn:
        x: 0
        y: 50
        z: 0
        name: Spawn
      Test:
        x: 5
        y: 50
        z: 5
        name: Test
    I've got this code:
    Code:
    final String NAME_OF_THING = getConfig().getString("waypoints." + getConfig().getConfigurationSection("waypoints").getKeys(false).toArray()[i] + ".name");
                player.sendMessage("You're attempting to go to " + NAME_OF_THING + " and the item's name is " + e.getCurrentItem().getItemMeta().getDisplayName());
                if (e.getCurrentItem().getItemMeta().getDisplayName().equals(NAME_OF_THING) == true) { // The line above will give me You're attempting to go to Spawn and the item's name is Spawn (but the second "Spawn" is in purple). I'm not sure why, but this never seems to be true. I think it might be because the displayname has a color and NAME_OF_THING doesn't have a color. I'm not sure how to remove the color when checking though.
                  System.out.println("It matches!");
                }
    
    Any help's appreciated! Thanks :D

    Compare strings using .equals, not enums (==).

    Thanks for that tip but it really wasn't helpful towards getting my question answered.

    @mccrafter1212 configurationsection.contains(item.getItemMeta().getDisplayName()) ?

    @timtower But isn't the displayName formatted with color, while the config.yml name doesn't use color? So, it won't be match. Right?

    @timtower So, final would be like:

    getConfig().configurationsection.contains(ChatColor.stripColor(item.getItemMeta().getDisplayName()));

    Correct?

    @mccrafter1212 Do get the correct configurationsection first though.
    And maybe move the displayname without colors to a variable after checking that it has a displayname etc.

    K so:

    String displayName = ChatColor.stripColor(item.getItemMeta().getDisplayName());
    if (getConfig().getConfigurationSection("waypoints").contains(displayName) == true) {
    // Code
    }

    Right? @timtower

    k, solved it @timtower
