I defined my own environment. Now I want to refer to my environment with autoref. But autoref should refer with my own defined name. But I don't know how to do this. Could someone help me?

My code looks like this:

\usepackage[framemethod=tikz]{mdframed} %Boxen mit Seitenumbruch
\newmdenv[tikzsetting={fill=blue!10},roundcorner=10pt,innerbottommargin=15pt, shadow=true,shadowsize=6pt,shadowcolor=gray,linewidth=8pt,needspace=50pt ]{myshadowbox}

Welcome to TeX.sx! Your environment has no anchor for any labels. What do you want to achieve? – Marco Daniel Apr 12 '13 at 12:22
When I now use \autoref, then comes something like "Section 0.1" (or in German "Abschnitt0.1"). Because this is my Theory-Box, I want instead of "Section 0.1" something like "Theory-Box 0.1". – Latex_NOOB Apr 12 '13 at 12:51
You need to define a counter variable (with the \newcounter command), execute \refstepcounter on that variable when you custom environment is entered, provide a \label to the instance(s) of the environment you'd like to cross-reference, and tell hyperref what the name should be of cross-referenced instances of your environment. – Mico Apr 12 '13 at 15:35
Use \newmdtheoremenv and everything will work – Marco Daniel Apr 12 '13 at 15:38
Use the optional argument of \newcounter, set it to either chapter or section. See de.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX-Wörterbuch:_newcounter – Axel Sommerfeldt Apr 13 '13 at 9:21
