I have written a program with VC++ v5.0

I have no problem on compile it and run it, but after I quit the program(normally), I found that something appear in the debug window.

It stated the following.....
Detected memory leaks!
Dumping objects ->
C:\myprogram(188) : {263} normal block at 0x007F4970, 16 bytes long.
...........

But in myprogram line no. 188, the statement is just "CRect *rect = new CRect;"

What's the problem in this line??

Are you deleting the memory? It appears that you have not deleted the memory, which is why the runtime libraries are complaining.

In the debug version of MFC dll's there is a mechanism that keeps track after dynamic allocation and deallocation, if you get this message then it means that the memory that you allocated in this line, was not deleted.  check all execution paths and see that you did delete the CRect memory in all ways.
thui's answer is corrent, thats why he should get the points, if you like my explanation better then give them to me  :-)

p.s.    if you are still convinced that the memory is deleted, we can discuss that, there are a some very interesting ways for debugging things like that.

I made a mistake in deallocating the memory, so that why I have
an error when I run the program.

But now I have another problem, just take a look on the source code first:

Object::myfunc()
{
    for (int i = 0; i < limit; i ++)
        BOject[i] = new CObject;
}

BObject is declare as ClassName *BObject[limit]
and I have delete [] *BObject

However,still "Detected memory leaks"

Yuo have deleted the array of pointers, but not the data that the pointers have pointed to.
you should add ( bofeor doing what you are right now ) a 'for'
that will delete the data itself - very simular to the allocations.
