Hi All,

I am going through the cavity tutorial and have read several references to a "Refresh Times" button used to reload data within ParaView. I am not seeing this button under properties. Can anyone help clarify ?

I am running openFoam on blueCFD-SingleCore-2.1 (for windows) and have paraView-3.14.1.

Thank you in advance!

Hi Alfredo,

The official OpenFOAM tutorials mention that button because it exists in Linux, because the official OpenFOAM plugin for ParaView is loaded and ready to be used.

When said plugin is not built and loaded, the internal reader is the one used. Due to several reasons, the internal plugin works in a different way. For more about this:
