Interface design question



I'm trying to replicate the SAP-style query interface in Java (i.e., the one that allows you to define multiple constraints like "Exclude values equal to ...".

This is a screenshot of what I'm talking about (this is made with an ABAP web dynpro, I'm doing this with Java WD instead):


I've evaluated three strategies to do the Operator selection icon (the one that lets you choose between Include equal... to Exclude between... and ...):

1. Use a Button + Popup to show the operators

2. Use a ButtonChoice

3. Use an Image + ContextualMenu

Can someone give me an insight of the pro and the cons of each strategy?

Thank you,
