unobstrusive label tag

just use

label_tag('a_a','a_a') 

and it works, just not ment for pure decorative labels :)

removes underscores -> do not use for images etc

example

#does not work
label_tag('aa'+image_tag('x_x.gif'))

Html inside Lable tag

I need this

<label>
   Show
   <select size="1" name="dyntable_length" aria-controls="dyntable">
     <option value="10" selected="selected">10</option>
     <option value="25">25</option>
     <option value="50">50</option>
     <option value="100">100</option>
   </select>

   entries
 </label>

I made a helper method:

def entries_lablel()
   label_tag '' do
     concat 'Show '
     concat content_tag(:select, options_for_select([10, 25, 50, 100]),
       {name: 'dyntable_length', size: 1}
     )
     concat ' entries'
   end
 end

and In my html.erb file I called it

<%= entries_lablel %>

You can pass paramateres to make it more generic also You can add multiple select elements or any other element using the same
