I want to extract the Graphics type when I hover my mouse over an object, but I failed to do so. Below is the code I am working on. Any suggestions are welcome

m = "E";
Graphics[{ 
  Mouseover[ {Black, Disk[{-10, 0}]}, {m = "D"; Red, Disk[{-10, 0}]}],
  Mouseover[ {Black, Rectangle[{10, 0}]}, {m = "R"; Red, 
    Rectangle[{10, 0}]}]
  ,  Text[Dynamic[m], {0, 0}]
  }]

Have a look at Annotation, it appears that fits what you're trying to do. –  rasher Feb 24 at 9:25

Use Dynamic inside Mouseover

Graphics[{
  Mouseover[{Black, Disk[{-10, 0}]}, Dynamic[{m = "D"; Red, Disk[{-10, 0}]}]],
  Mouseover[{Black, Rectangle[{10, 0}]}, Dynamic[{m = "R"; Red, Rectangle[{10, 0}]}]],
  Dynamic@Text[m, {0, 0}]
  }, ImageSize -> 400]
