Creating Graphical User Interfaces (GUIDE) Upgrade Issues

Upgrading from MATLAB 6.1 to MATLAB 6.5, in terms of GUIDE-related features, involves the following issue.

Using GUIDE Version 6.5 to Open GUIs Created in Versions 6.0 or 6.1

GUIDE generates a GUI's associated M-file with a new structure for Version 6.5. If you open a GUI that was created in Guide versions 6.0 or 6.1 using GUIDE version 6.5, the GUI will continue to function as it did previously. However, GUIDE does not update the existing code in the GUI's M-file to match the new style. If you add new components to the GUI in GUIDE version 6.5, GUIDE generates callbacks for the new components using the new M-code style, but leaves the original callbacks unchanged.
