label String|Function|Object (default: null)

Adds a label before the textarea. If the textarea has no id attribute, a generated id will be assigned. The string and the function parameters are setting the inner HTML of the label.

Example - create a label from a string

<textarea id="description"></textarea>
<script>
    $("#description").kendoTextArea({
        label: "Description"
    })
</script>

The function context (available via the this keyword) will be set to the widget instance.

Example - create a label from a function

<textarea id="description"></textarea>
<script>
    $("#description").kendoTextArea({
            label: function() {
                return "First name";
            }
    })
</script>
