Hello, I am following the cavity tutorial provided from sourceforge.

I have not run into any problems executing the case in the termal, but when I go to view pressure contours in paraview I get a solid rendering instead of colour gradients representing the pressure. In playing around with the Color Map Editor I see a message stating "Data Range Too Small to Render."

I did not get any obvious error messages when I ran the case, but I will post the terminal i/o. Unfortunately, I am learning this on my own and dont have access to professors (or anyone for that matter) who is experienced with the software. Any help is appreciated

change directory
Code:
=> cd $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity
execute the mesh
Code:
=> blockMesh
run the case
Code:
=> icoFoam
output at last iteration
Code:
Time = 0.5

Courant Number mean: 0.222158 max: 0.852134
smoothSolver:  Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 2.32737e-07, Final residual = 2.32737e-07, No Iterations 0
smoothSolver:  Solving for Uy, Initial residual = 5.07002e-07, Final residual = 5.07002e-07, No Iterations 0

ExecutionTime = 0.11 s  ClockTime = 1 s

End

any idea what is up?

Ah... Well I figured it out. In Paraview I had the 0th time step selected, which by default would not have any gradients shown. After selecting t=.5 seconds I got the correct rendering
