I produce exercises, in book environment, chapter by chapter, using the doc in the last version of tcolorbox. In this version, the labels are automatically produced (with the command label={exercise@\thetcbcounter}). I want to make my own labels, like in the previous version, by the same way as the command label={exe:#2}, where #2 is the name of the label what I want to define. How can I do this ?

I give an example of a file with the data in the doc, and I use the command

The solution of the exercise \ref{[email protected]} is in the page \pageref{[email protected]}

so I want to recall the labels (found in the .aux file !) [email protected] and [email protected] by the labels exercise:mylabel and solution:mylabel, respectively.

The derivative is:

Following code adds a mandatory argument to exercise. This mandatory argument is the label which will be added to exercise:... and solution:....

The introduction of this label implied to change label, after upper and record option definitions in exercise tcolorbox. Also previous #1 has been changed to #2.

In solution box there are no new arguments but changes in title and phantomlabel.

The derivative is:

The result and auxiliary files don't change, only the contents in aux file will show new label syntax and values.
