Parameters:
when
 Time at which to plot Type: A floating point number, or the earliest or latest time.
what

Output
object whose value is a real number. where
 Plot at displaced or original position? Type: An
Output
object whose value is a position in the xy plane. min
 level of lowest contour, or 'automatic' Type: An integer, a real number, or the string 'automatic'.
max
 level of highest contour, or 'automatic' Type: An integer, a real number, or the string 'automatic'.
levels
 number of levels or list of levels (in []) Type: An integer, or a list of numbers.
nbins
 number of internal subdivisions per element Type: Integer.

Description
PlainContourDisplay
draws a contour plot of
a ScalarOutput
quantity on a Mesh
with lines at specified contour values.
what
is the value to be plotted.
^{[32]}
where
determines whether the plot is drawn on
the original
undistorted mesh, at the actual displaced elements,
or at enhanced
displaced positions.
min
and max
specify the
range of the data to be plotted. One or both of them may be set
to automatic, in which case they are
determined by the actual limits of the data.
levels
determines the number of contour lines
to be drawn. It can be either an integer, in which case the
specified number of lines will be evenly spaced between
min
and max
, or it may be a
Python list of real numbers
specifying the contour values,
e.g,[0.0, 0.1,
0.2]
.
The OOF2 contour plotting routines divide each element into a
number of small triangles (bins), and linearly interpolate the plotted
quantity within the bins. nbins
is the number
of bins along the edge of a Mesh element. A small value of
nbins
will lead to a faster but cruder
plot.nbins
must be at least 1.
