Dear Linzhang,
As Cris mentioned, you cannot calculate the WPLi value with one trial. The
WPLI toolbox calculates the CSD and PSD for each single trial, and then get
the "correlation" of the phase information across trials.  This apparently
could not be done with one trial.
If you have continuous data you may try to segment it into epochs.
