RWCoviseGroup is available for COVISE 5.1 and higher and on all supported platforms.

Parameters

Name Type Description
groupfile Browser Full filename of the group information file. Every line of this file must be in the format: <description>:<filename>.
file_0 ... file_15 Choice If these file choices are mapped into the control panel you are in the reading mode. With these choices you decide which output object every output port shall get.
description_0... description_15 String If you see the description fields in the control panel you are in the writing mode.
NOTE: You have to execute the module once to get this object information!
You can now give every object your own description line.

Examples

RWCoviseGroupMap.png

The first RWCoviseGroup reads the data in. We have four files: one for the grid data, one for the temperature data, one for the pressure data and one for the velocity data. The map uses the data to compute a cutting surface and some trace lines. In this example the temperature data is used for the cutting surface. But with RWCoviseGroup you can now visualize the pressure data without changing your map: Choose "pressure" for the field_1 choice parameter which defines the output of the second output port and execute the pipeline again. You then get the result shown in the next picture.

The second RWCoviseGroup modules is now in writing mode. You can choose your own description for the two connected ports.
