MultiWaitBar creates a one or two-dimensional grid of waitbars in a single figure window. Titles and bar colors can be individually modified. Each bar is an instance of the WaitBarAxes class. The WaitBarAxes objects can be passed to functions or objects for updates without knowledge of their position in the grid. This download includes MultiWaitBar.m, WaitBarAxes.m and two demonstration programs. Thanks to Sviatoslav Danylenko for suggestions.
Your MultiWaitBar is cool, but I found one issue on linux. It's continuously steals focus from other windows. To avoid this you can remove string with 'axes()' in `WaitBarAxes` class. And than you should add string `drawnow` after before 'if ~self.isVisible'

Improved Linux compatibility. No longer steals focus from other windows.
