Plot a field constant by elements

I have a function atrue (constant by elements) :

Va = FunctionSpace(mesh, ‘DG’, 0)
atrue = Function(Va)

and I want to plot it on a mesh !!


plot(atrue, title=“True parameter field”, mode=“warp”)

But it does not work.

Output the function to file (e.g. XDMFFile) and visualise with an application such as paraview. Or take a look at the fantastic vtkplotter which has support for dolfin functions through vtkplotter.dolfin.plot

from a similar example:

from dolfin import *
from vtkplotter.dolfin import plot

def f(coordinate):
    if coordinate[0]>0.5: return 1
    return 0

mesh = UnitSquareMesh(50, 50)

V = FunctionSpace(mesh, "DG", 0)
g = Function(V)

coords = V.tabulate_dof_coordinates()

for i in range(V.dim()):
    g.vector()[i] = f(coords[i])

plot(g, style='paraview', lw=0)
