Hello,

sorry for bumping a two years old thread, but I am on ParaView 3.14 and non-Ubuntu Linux and I cannot seem to find any reload button nor "Update GUI" checkbox? How can I reload data for my cases?

You didn't need to bump an old thread, you could have started a new thread altogether ...

Anyway, what reader are you using in ParaView? The one that comes internally in ParaView or the one that OpenFOAM has?
The easiest way to tell them apart is: which file extension are you opening with? "case.foam" or "case.OpenFOAM"?

Best regards,
Bruno

It's always a grey area for me: should I start a new thread or should I just continue when there seems to be such a relevant post already there. Next time I'll just do a link!

I am using foam extension. I always create it with touch command and then open it from paraview which I compile or download separately.

Hi Robert,

I've moved our posts to a new thread

OK, so you're using the internal reader. Currently the internal reader provided in ParaView doesn't have quick update button.

To replicate this functionality, what I usually do is the following steps:
  1. Tick the check box "List timesteps according to controlDict". It's on the lower part of the "Object Inspector", tab "Properties".
  2. Hit the "Apply" button.
  3. Untick the check box "List timesteps according to controlDict".
  4. Hit the "Apply" button once again.
The other solution is to change the "Case Type" between decomposed and reconstructed mode or vice-versa.

Best regards,
Bruno
