How can I obtain an entity from a wblocked dwg?

If I've wblocked to a file, how can I obtain an entity in C# that represents the block?

Say I wanted to add it to a drawing, I would do this:

BlockTableRecord newBtr = new BlockTableRecord();
newBtr.Name = "MyBlock";
newBtrId = bt.Add(newBtr);
trans.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(newBtr, true);
trans.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(***theEntity***, true);

What can I fill in the blank with?

Thanks very much for your help. I'm really lost with this stuff.

i think you should be using a block ref object for retrieving the Wblock
