[Eeglablist] question regarding event marker's labels

Thank you Tarik for your response. Actually, as per my colleague's
suggestion, deleting the last event resolved it. Below is the code for the

EEG = pop_editeventvals(EEG,'delete',length(EEG.event));
eeglab redraw;

We are not sure though as to why this would resolve it. However, we think
it could be, as you also mentioned, the limitation of how much the eeg plot
window can easily show of the event labels as we do have a large data files.

And just to answer you, yes the labels showed up with the eeglab tutorial
sample data. The labels in our data comprised of just 6 digits.

Thank you,
