The method is applied only to select controls in the lightbox, to get the label of a specific option.

For example, you can use the method to change the template of displaying the event's text:

scheduler.templates.event_text = function(start, end, event){
    return event.text + " ("+scheduler.getLabel("unit_id",event.unit_id) +")";
scheduler.init('scheduler_here',new Date(2013,5,30),"unit");
 {start_date:"06/30/2013 09:00",end_date:"06/30/2013 12:00",text:"TaskA",unit_id:1},
 {start_date:"06/30/2013 12:00",end_date:"06/30/2013 20:00",text:"TaskB",unit_id:2},
 {start_date:"06/30/2013 08:00",end_date:"06/30/2013 12:00",text:"TaskC",unit_id:2}
