GUI_30()
function [] = GUI_30()
% Same as GUI_29, except uses callback strings.
% Uses callback strings.  Strings are evaluated in command window using
% eval, so we need to make the strings find the objects needed.  For this
% use findobj.  This is included simply as a reference to an older style.
% Callback strings are evaluated in the base workspace, so when using this
% style this MUST be taken into account. (Note that this style of callback
% is generally not recommended, for good reasons.)
