I built the example, both with and without the const reference edit I suggested on my Talk page, and I'm not getting a leak popup when it exits. I'm building with the following commands:
@rem build VTK cd g:\devel\vtk\output\vs9 cmake -D CMAKE_DEBUG_POSTFIX="_d" -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=G:/devel/VTK/vs9 -D VTK_DEBUG_LEAKS=ON -G "Visual Studio 9 2008" ..\..\vtk-5.4.2 @rem build rectangular button example cd g:\devel\vtkButton\bin cmake -D CMAKE_DEBUG_POSTFIX="_d" -D VTK_DEBUG_LEAKS=ON -D VTK_DIR="g:/devel/VTK/vs9/lib/vtk-5.4" -G "Visual Studio 9 2008" ../src --debug-output
I found I had to edit the resulting vcproj file to add the "_d" suffix to all the VTK library references in the Debug configuration.

I use Visual Studio IDE for all my VTK and cout does not take std::string as a parameter to "<<" . Maybe other IDEs work I wasn't aware. Dpai 18:35, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
- I just checked and in VC9 I find the inserter in the file vc/include/string. Search for "operator<<" and you'll find the one that inserts template basic_string into a basic_ostream. (These are the base classes for cout and std::string.) -- ScratchMonkey 19:36, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
