# Using item “labels” in beamer

I want to use the same image that's used in \item in my beamer presentation in other parts of the text (basically, at the start of a non-itemize paragraph, or in a tabular, whatever.

I am using now this hack that I digged out looking at the beamer sources:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{tikz}
\mode<presentation>
{
\usecolortheme{crane}
\setbeamercovered{transparent}
}
%% digged out from beamerbaseauxtemplates.sty
\makeatletter
\def\itemmarker{\leavevmode\hbox{\raise0.2pt\beamer@usesphere{item projected}{bigsphere}}}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test}
\begin{itemize}
\item one
\item two
\end{itemize}

\itemmarker\ This use the same graphic of the itemize item

\end{frame}
\end{document}


...but this is suboptimal, because it will break if I change the theme or even the inner theme. What I would like is something like \insertitemlabel which is not provided as far as I know.

Is there a way to define a generic \useitemlabel macro that gives access to the current label that is used for itemized elements?

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{tikz}
\mode<presentation>
{
\usecolortheme{crane}
\setbeamercovered{transparent}
}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test}
\begin{itemize}
\item one
\item two
\end{itemize}

\leavevmode\usebeamertemplate{itemize item} This use the same graphic of the itemize item

\end{frame}
\end{document}
