Angry Writing data from DEFINE_DPM_SPRAY_COLLIDE

Hi All.

I'm currently creating a UDF using the Macro DEFINE_DPM_SPRAY_COLLIDE. Within this code I generate a random number. It turns out that even if my source file simply contains the fprintf commands, I'm unable to write data. However, when using the exact same fprintf commands in a seperate source file using DEFINE_DPM_SCALAR_UPDATE I was able to write a file showing the displacements, velocities, Particle IDs etc.

Any ideas on how I could export data from DEFINE_DPM_SPRAY_COLLIDE would be really appreciated.

Make sure you understand when your function is called. I never use this one, but you can add this line of code to check when your function is executed:

Message("DEFINE_DPM_SPRAY_COLLIDE executed!");

If the function executes, you will see the message on the console.

That helps me some times to track such problems.

Have a good day.
