Question 1: How to set focus to (bring to front) the a figure window.
I have multiple figure windows being updated. Due to the lack of space on the screen, I have these on top of each other and I have to keep clicking on the figures as they are being updated in a loop.

For ex: figure(1) and figure(2) are updated 5 times in a loop, figure(1) for the first 10%, then figure(2) and so on. (resizing is not an option)

I have been searching for solutions to change the focus of this window. I tried these solutions without any success ( I am on Ubuntu Linux, R2011b) :

figure(fig1Handle); etc
set(fig1Handle, 'position', fig1Position);

guidata(hObject,handles); displays all the properties whenever it is called. Is there a way to suppress this info?
