So, when evaluating PSL Page Builder’s drag & drop interface with those of its competitors, at first glance they may seem quite similar. Yet, they could not be more different.
How Does It Differ?
To start with there is a fundamental difference between PSL Page Builder and any other VDP solution’s drag & drop interface. With all other solutions you are simply invoking a command when you drag & drop. The PSL Page Builder interface is actually a code writing wizard that creates code utilizing the PSL VDP language as fast as you can drag & drop. This code is unseen to the non-programming operator but resting under the surface if there is a need to access it to customize a project in any form.
Breaking Down The Walls
So what happens with PSL Page Builder when need exceeds the drag & drop capability? The user simply accesses the underlying PSL VDP language to keep from being walled in.
PSL Page Builder provides bridges, if you will, that leverage the PSL VDP language but do not require a user to actually code. Those bridges include;
• Value Functions
• Logical Functions or Conditions
• Custom Boxes
• Value Statements
Power users with PSL Page Builder Pro can all show off their programming skills by writing code. But once that code is entered that power user can make it available to non-programmer users without them needing any programming knowledge.
