Many thanks for looking at this and `TeX-read-label' ;-)

Following your suggestion, I changed my code to:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun LaTeX-arg-caption-captionbox (optional &optional prompt)
  "Query for the arguments of `\\captionbox' incl. a label and
insert them."
  (let* ((caption (TeX-read-string (TeX-argument-prompt optional prompt 
         (label (if (and (boundp 'LaTeX-label-function)
                         (fboundp LaTeX-label-function)
                         (eq LaTeX-label-function 'reftex-label))
                    (funcall LaTeX-label-function nil t)
                  (TeX-read-label optional "Label" t)))
         (width   (completing-read (TeX-argument-prompt t prompt "Width")
                                   (mapcar (lambda(elt) (concat TeX-esc (car 
         (inpos   (completing-read (TeX-argument-prompt t prompt "Inner 
                                   '("c" "l" "r" "s")))
         (heading (format "%s\\label{%s}" caption label)))
  [rest snipped]
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

It checks for (eq LaTeX-label-function 'reftex-label) and runs it with
the required arguments.  Otherwise, your new function.  The only
drawback of `TeX-read-label' is that it does not guess the current
environment and puts a label prefix (fig: or tab:) in the minibuffer.
Well, I would say "yet another reason to turn on RefTeX".

Again, thanks a ton.

Best, Arash
