How to view the inlet volocity profile
 
I have installed groovyBC and set a profile for inlet velocity. But I want to know how to view the profile. Does anyone know how to view the inlet velocity profile?

In paraview deselect the internal field in the panel of the reader and select the inlet patch instead.

By the way, I want to ask how to set the length of arrow according its magnitude,i.e. with different length of arrow. My inlet velocity profile is equal in length with different color. Is it possible with different length. Sorry, I do not know how to attach a picture. Cheers.

In ParaView: Glyph highlightened in Pipeline Browser, Properties -> Scale mode -> vector
It's explained in OF 2.0.0 user guide, U-29 (2.1.4.2 Vector plots).
