Some Gui Functions!

Yo, it's me again. Zak. I am going to show you some gui functions and the way of changing them. This will be a short tutorial on GUI. So remember- pay attention!

Creating your own function:
Creating a function of your own can easily be done, you can just do something like...

So, this is a function I made up in a few seconds.
function hover() --Custom function
BLANK--in these blank lines, will be what the script will do when you "hover" over the gui.
