visual tool

visual tool

Any program, utility, routine or function that performs an operation by dragging and dropping icons or by "drawing" the solution. Visual tools are the norm today in virtually every graphics-based (Windows, Mac, etc.) application. The term is mostly used to refer to an operation that has typically been command-line based. For example, a visual tool might simplify a programming function that would otherwise require writing lines of code.
