Default Data entry window that looks like a paper form

Hi,

I need to create a data entry form that looks like a paper form. The user doesn't want to see the controls (Edit boxes, combos) but just editing zones. A good example is the forms in a "Taxes" application.

The current version of their application is a dynamically generated form with edits, memos, checkboxes, comboboxes... It looks very busy, It's very slow and takes too much resources (Big problem for Windows 9x).

I looked at the grid and treeview components but it's not exactly what's needed here. I need something that is more freeform for the layout.

I work with Delphi 5.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
JF

P.S. It doesn't have to be free.

TurboPower's Orpheus has edit controls that look like paper.

Also Raize Components from http://www.raize.com/Default.htm

Thanks Stephan,

This is the right look and feel but I don't think that whould fix the resources consumption problem and the time it takes to dynamically generate the form..?

Thanks for the answers!

Someone on the Delphi newsgroups recommended the Defined Forms 6.0 package (www.defined.net). It seems to be the way to go for resources efficient forms.
