Hi Joshua,
I’m sorry to say that we’re not planning on supporting LV anytime in the near future: the user base is simply too small compared to other environments.

But after discussing LV support with a more LV-savvy colleague for a while, we came to the conclusion that the way to go is to write a “proxy dll” for LV. The proxy should expose a simpler API, perhaps only with a function to read the X and Y coordinates of the gaze point. Because when you use the raw EyeX C API, you need a bit of boilerplate code, and that’s just too much work to write in LV. You could use the MinimalGazeDataStream sample as a starting point.

If you’re willing to try to build something like this and share it with the community then that would be great!
