Use paraview to read .dat file


I have a .dat file. I try to plot them with Paraview. But maybe it doesn’t read the file successfully and it doesn’t have a result plot. Another point, it dosen’t show me any errors.


Can you look at the Information panel and see if there is some data loaded ? If something was loaded you should see data type and number of elements (at least)

It just looks like this, There is nothing here.

That is the Properties panel not, the Information one. The Information panel is open by default in ParaView. See the View menu otherwise.
