mirko is on a distinguished road

when I run the OF2.0 tutorial multiRegionHeaterRadiation, I can display field variables for timesteps other than 0. The droplist in paraview only shows Solid Color, CellID, and CellNormals.

I started Paraview via paraFoam.

What am I doing wrong?

javad814 is on a distinguished road
there are some region in the example
you should type for a region first
for example for heater region :
paraFoam -region heater
and then in paraveiw you can see other regions bye below process:
File>Open and select for example: multiRegionHeaterRadiation{bottomAir}.OpenFOAM
now you see two region in paraview and you can change the peroperties seperatly
