The Design of Software (CLOSED)

A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.

The "Design of Software" discussion group has been merged with the main Joel on Software discussion group.

The archives will remain online indefinitely.

I'm looking for a skin or library or components...

Per this article about dealing with client expectations:

http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/fog0000000356.html

I believe I read on JOS about a user interface library that would allow you to create applications that looked like the controls came from handwritten notes. All text on the controls is rendered like handwriting. I think the graphical background of the forms and controls looked like crumpled lined note paper.

Basically, building an application with this tool would give it a look to end users that it is "obviously" beta or internal-ware.

I also believe (I am not sure) that it was a Delphi VCL library.

Anyone recall this or know of something like it?

Thanks.
