Hello everybody!

As titled, I have a question about the 'show-window' option of pyFoamRedoPlot. I have expected several windows popping up due to this option, but nothing happens. I tried it on two different PCs (both Suse 12.2). Generally the command works fine (writes hardcopies, connects to server etc.). Am I expecting something wrong? I would like to have a quick overview of a simulation from another PC while the 'server' is running it. Are there any other ways to do this?
Thanks for any advice.

The command:
Code:
pyFoamRedoPlot.py --show-window --sleep-time=5 --server <server> <port>
The output:
Code:
Found 7 plots and 7 data sets
Adding line 1
Adding line 3
Adding line 2
Adding line 5
Adding line 4
Adding line 7
Adding line 6
Plotting 1 : linear 
Plotting 3 : bounding No data - skipping
Plotting 2 : continuity 
Plotting 5 : courant No data - skipping
Plotting 4 : iterations 
Plotting 7 : execution 
Plotting 6 : timestep No data - skipping

  • Have a look at the directory: you should find some files with the ending PNG. Assignment: Google to find out what that data format could be
  • Use the utility with the option --help and wonder what '--show-window' could be about. Assignment: if option does not work as expected write a bug report

Of course I did all this before writing here. As I said, there are hardcopies (PNG), if I want them to be there. And after consulting the utilities help I expected the plots to show up, what they didn't.
I just asked before writing a bug report, trying to avoid a developer spending useless time on things I misunderstood.

Regards

Sorry. Should have read the title of your posting before answering. Now I feel like Vader in the Star Wars Canteen ("Oh. I didn't realise")

Will look into the issue (saw you opened a ticket on the Manits. Thanks)
