Dear Nicolas,
Thank you for your help. I followed your advice, and projected on the Lagrange basis before generating a results file for gmsh. It worked like a charm, I have been able to interface easily with gmsh and can now visualize hp-FEM solutions up to order 10 on very coarse meshes (see some nice snapshots below). It looks awesome, thanks.
Kind regards,
Hadrien

Dear Hadrien,
The current solution to visualize higher-order fields, is to project it into a Lagrange basis (the one used by gmsh for the high-order visu).
A better solution is perhaps to allow the user to enter his own basis functions, defining thus an InterpolationSheme per orientation, as you suggested.
But this is not possible yet...
The 'projection-on-a-Lagrange-basis' solution has the good point that only one well defined basis is used, and it is up to the user to accommodate to the interface...
If you want an example, you can have a look at the small_fem solver:
http://gitlab.onelab.info/gmsh/small_fem
It uses the 'projection-on-a-Lagrange-basis' solution.
The class postprocessing/FEMSolution (FEMSolution.cpp; FEMSolution.h and
FEMSolutionInclusion.h)
could be a good starting point if you want to get some inspiration :-).
By the way, I think that small_fem uses the same basis functions as hp-fem ;-).
Regarding the CG vs DG, the gmsh Lagrange basis function are defined in a CG way.
So you will end up with correct solution.
And finally, if you want a high-order vector solution, you have to project the 3 components of the vector field.
I hope this helps.
Best,
Nicolas.
