Not to my knowledge.

As stated in the books, all classes share the :
members functions. Use DebugOn on your Tcl object and it will displays 
additional informations related to what it is doing (provided that your 
compiled VTK with DebugMacros on).

In your code, use the debugging macros to display messages :

                 vtkDebugMacro(<< "doing something");

or write a short C++ program that calls your class, then step into it.
