Default Help on run fluent jou file

I bulit a fluent jou file by using start Jounal file and stop jou file in the file menu.

this is part of the file I built, the file name is sample.jou : ************************************************** **** (cx-gui-do cx-activate-item "MenuBar*ReadSubMenu*Case & Data...") (cx-gui-do cx-set-text-entry "Select File*FilterText" "*.cas*") ************************************************** *

Since I am not intending to read my "sample.jou" file from the file menu, I want it to be run in background, so I typed command:

fluent 3d -g -i sample.jou

it gives me an error like this: ************************************************ Error: No GUI functions are available. Error Object: () (cx-gui-do cx-activate-item "MenuBar*ReadSubMenu*Case & Data...") ************************************************

Anyone can tell me how to solve this problem? thanks.

If you want your journal file to run for a background job, then you can only use the text-mode interface when you record it.

So rather than click on the file menu, and selecting read... then case & data, you type: file/read-case-data "myfile.cas"

There are text equivalents of pretty much all the GUI, and there are even a few things that you can only get at through the text interface.

Hope that helps.

Try the same example but typing: fluent 3d -i sample.jou (do not include -g) the -g command disables the graphic options, that is why you weren't able to run GUI commands (Graphic User Interface)

Hope that helps
