Techopedia explains Visual Programming Language (VPL)
Visual language has a few types, such as icon-based languages, diagramming languages and form-based language. Visual languages should not be confused with GUI-based programming language as they only provide graphical program authoring services. However, their code/context is completely textual.
Kodu, Blockly and executable UML are popular examples of visual programming languages.
