This function is an adaptation of a demo published by Steven Lord that let you add a slider to an axes. This function shows you how to set up a slider in a figure that will scroll through tiled axes.

This functionality is very usefull in situations where you have a lot of information to plot but would rather not have a lot of figures open.

The only negative thing that I have noticed is that on slower computers it can take awhile to scroll if there are a LOT of data points on individual plots.

This can also be easily modified to show more than 1 row at a time ... but I'll leave that to you.
