Thank you André. The dynamic_cast worked perfectly. I'm from a C background
and have been doing C-style casts for years without any major problems.
Apparently this guy has also:)

The above looks suspicious. The cast you're doing here is unsafe. Your
check on base on the second line is useless, as the C-style cast you're
using doesn't do any checking. So, my suspicion is that your item isn't a
BaseObject, and thus the method call you make into it is going to fail. Use
a dynamic_cast<BaseObject*>(**item) for your cast instead. That cast _
will_  result in a 0 pointer if the cast fails.
