Hello Guys, I have a problem and would appreciate any help.

I calculate my simulation time in the program I am developing. And the time inside the program is not the same as real world time or computer clock time. Than for each output file i write this "extime" variable that tell me the time in that particular output. I would like to know if it is possible to take that variable "extime", or take its minimun or maximum (considering these are the same values) and plot it as a dynamic text in my frame.

Attached you will find the pictures I took from my output file and the variable in tecplot. I changed the variable name in tecplot so in the file you're gonna see that the variable name is actually "time".

I am using tecplot 360 2008

The vorticity plot shows what I want to do. To Show my "extime" variable as a dynamic text on my frame.

Thanks a lot.

Hello leoenav,

Tecplot dynamic text variables are all listed in the Quick Reference Guide. If you would like to add "extime" as a dynamic variable you can use the following text:

time = &(MAXVAR[13])

This assumes that "extime" is the 13th variable in your list.

Thanks,

John Connell

Thanks bro, it worked fine. Just one more thing, where can I find the format options? I'd like to show the number with only three decimal places.

Thank you

Founf it. Just make time = &(MAXVAR[13]%.0f) in this case there is no decimal places.
