    Borland Builder is a good example of a visual development tool. It allows you to create your application in a drag and drop fashion. You can then attach code to each of the components or controls within the window by selecting the component.

    Compare this to a non-visual development environment where you generally have to place controls and items programatically. True Visual Development tools are sometimes also referred to as RAD (Rapid Application Development) tools, because the drag and drop nature of the tool can speed up the process of development.

    There aren't actually that many of these tools that I can think of. Microsoft Visual Studio is not all that visual (well at least the C++ portion of it) - however the C# IDE is pretty good.

    Hope this helps.
