Deleaker: a plugin for Qt Creator to find leaks (memory, GDI, handles etc.)



  • Dear developers,

    I really hope that this is the right place to share news about plugins for Qt Creator.

    We've just released new Deleaker 2019.20 with support of Qt Creator.

    Deleaker is a tool to find leaks for C++ developers on Windows. It is available as a standalone application and also can be integrated into Visual Studio and RAD Studio (Delphi / C++ Builder). CLion support is coming.

    Now it's time for Qt Creator.

    No more memory leaks, GDI leaks, leaks of handles and other.

    You can get Deleaker here.

    I''ve recorded a video tutorial, and also below you will find some text and pictures that illustrate how Deleaker works within Qt Creator:

    The installer detects available versions of Qt Creator:

    New Deleaker menu is added:

    You can take a snapshot while debugging, or once a process exits to review allocations and possible leaks:

    It's easy to walk a call stack that is available for each allocation:

    If you think that Deleaker can be useful for you please get a demo version.

    Happy coding!



  • What does Deleaker do that Heob does not? I use Heob for memory leaks, but I don't know much more than that. I also use Valgrind for Linux, and I know it does more than Heob.
