Hey all members of this wonderful community. I am currently building an eeg experiment that also integrates eye-tracking through an old Tobii compact eyetracker. However when I try to add this in the builder view there is no button to click on, or way that I can see to add the component to the experiment flow. It looks like the window is missing a an outer component somehow (see picture). Anyone else experienced this? And is there a fix out there?

Don’t you have access to the Flow of the experiment? I can see it popping at the bottom.
After creating a validation routine, press the Insert Routine button inside your Flow and place the new routine.

Hey Chen,

I see from your answer that I didn’t quite use the right terminology. My apologies. I’m unable to add the eyetracker calibration component to the current routine. Here is a screenshot of the whole screen of my builder.

On the contrary, here is a screenshot of the normal component addition process where there is an “ok” button which I would very much like to click in order to add the eyetracking calibration component to the routine.

Any ideas on how to get the “ok” button to appear similarly for the eyetracking calibration component?

The eye-tracking component is actually a standalone routine, so you can’t add it to an existing routine.
You need to press the Insert Routine button inside your flow and choose the location of your Calibration component.


Thank you, Chen! That works as described.
