Panel Control to Draw or Edit Marker Waves

This uses a panel to create, edit, and clear a drawing wave. The waves are created in the current data folder and have the names drawwaveY and drawwaveX.

// a static constant to set the panel name
StrConstant k_panelname = "WaveDrawEdit"

// change this to set your desired marker style to create and edit the marker wave
Function set_DrawMarkerStyle(frontimgwin)
    string frontimgwin

    // set your desired marker style here
    ModifyGraph/W=$frontimgwin mode=3,marker=8,msize=5,mrkThick=2

    return 0
end

// call this to create the panel
Function show_DrawControlPanel() : Panel

draw wave edit panel

With one clever change, the system now keeps the markers for the drawing also when clicking the End... button. It first toggles to GraphWaveEdit/T=1, then toggles to GraphNormal.
