[Eeglablist] std_erpimage error mesage

Dear Lucia,

You need to know (or the application should figure it out) the minimum
number of available trials across all conditions and subjects. To code it,
it should be something like this:

numTrialList = zeros(length(ALLEEG),3)) % if there are 3 conditions
for n = 1:length(ALLEEG)
tmpEEG = ALLEEG(1,n);
allEventTypes = {tmpEEG.event.type}';
numTrialList(n,1) = find(strcmp(allEventTypes, 'event1')));
numTrialList(n,2) = find(strcmp(allEventTypes, 'event2')));
numTrialList(n,3) = find(strcmp(allEventTypes, 'event3')));

I wrote it without opening Matlab so there may be mistake.

I believe this should be really implemented in EEGLAB so that the
application suggests the upper bound. Ramon, would you please add it to
