Default Empty Probe File - Probes not working

Hello all,

I need some help!! :-) ..... I am using a user contributed solver (based on simpleFoam solver.) The solver runs without a problem, but when I include the probe object function nothing gets written to the probe file ... The points are within the domain and I do not get any errors.

(Note: I am running OF 3.0.0)

This is the code in the controlDict
Code:
functions
{
    probes
    {
        type            probes;
        functionObjectLibs ("libsampling.so");
         functionObjectLibs ("libfieldFunctionObjects.so")
        region             region0;
        enabled         true;
        outputControl   timeStep;
        outputInterval  1;

        fields
        (
            p
        );

        probeLocations
        (
            (0.4 0.0 0.0)
            (0.5 0.0 0.0)
            (0.6 0.0 0.0)
        );

    }
}
and this is the output in postProcessing/probes/0.1/p (Probes locations are recognized but nothing gets written to the file!!!)
Code:
# Probe 0 (0.4 0 0)
# Probe 1 (0.5 0 0)
# Probe 2 (0.6 0 0)
#       Probe             0             1             2
#        Time
Should I include any specific header files in the solver.C file? (I've tried adding '#include "probes.H" ' but that didnt seem to do any good. Any help is much appreciated!!

Do you get results when you use the simpleFoam solver?

Yes,

I've tried it with the native solvers and it seems to work. I ran the pitzDaily case and the probes work just fine. Any thoughts?

Hi Bazinga, I found the solution by changing:
Code:
for (runTime++; !runTime.end(); runTime++)
to
Code:
while (runTime.loop())
Can you (or anyone else) explain why that affects the function object? Thanks
