If the chart type doesn't depend on the data provided in 1) and 2), then selecting the chart type first won't be a problem. The problem arises when you can rule out certain types of data after the first steps, as this would lead to an error if the "wrong" data gets provided in later steps. It of course also depends on your target audience. Experienced chart ...

Here is a live demo to demonstrate how easy this is to use. Keeping it simple and user-friendly is probably a good idea, so I would use something like this: It has concise yet easy-to-understand instructions at the top, and it's fairly obvious what you have to do. Here is what it looks like when interacting with it: You can also deselect items by ...

I would keep it simple: Two drop down lists. Having 20 items in a list is a good reason for using a drop down anyway. The lists could disable already selected items if it doesn't make sense to compare items with themselves.

I would do something like the following. Simply allow the user to pick an Item from the list and then click the arrow to which box you want it to go in (if something is already there, it will be replaced). Also, putting the list in the middle and the details on either side give it a much cleaner and simpler layout in my opinion. I've done this in many ...

Diff tools are usually aligned vertically: item 1 on the left, item 2 on the right. What is a "compare"? As for me, it is something like "select first item" then comare it with others. Once new item is better, I switch to it and another iteration begins. I will probably be iterested to mark some items i like and compare only these items. When screen is ...

two rows of radio buttons as e.g. on the wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia&action=history

You give the entire list on the left side. Once the first item is selected show the selected item in right top window. Once the second item is selected show you can show the comparison between the two. Edited Components List (Collection of Nodes) Box A (For Node A) Box B (For Node B) On Mouse Over on any node show the option to select A or B (No ...

How about something like this? I think it can work pretty well for both desktop and mobile and it also uses less screen space. This also scales nicely to more than two options. No items selected. Next to your list of options there is a list of "tokens" that serve as a visual indicator of how many options you have to select. Only one item selected. When ...

I would combine the two existing answers here. They are both very good; but the drag and drop list: The concept of two distinct items is lost as the items are just added to an amorphous group of 2. Changing the selection requires explicitly removing an existing item. It would be a challenge to eliminate this step (e.g. you could drop onto an existing ...

You could use a source area (list of items) and a target area (drop zone), to which the user can drag items from the list. download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups The drop zone should clearly state how many items are need to be placed there. I suggest to use a text message that emphasizes the remaining count of items, ...

If you want a two item selection for diffing, I think you can look to WinMerge as a good inspiration: If you are inside the app and click the "Open" icon it will launch a dialog with two textboxes for entering left and right files: WinMerge also integrates itself with Windows Explorer and puts a "WinMerge" entry in the Right mouse button context popup ...

The easiest thing for the user is probably a textfield - that'll make it easy to delete any bits of the text they don't want. Something like this perhaps? I've left out the 'exact match' option: it makes it simpler for the user, and I suspect that there are very few cases where the user needs to do an exact match where a substring match wouldn't work.

Are you always selecting complete words as triggers? If so, you could use completion: User types "B", system proposes "Belfast" and "Belfast account", user selects second one. Or, the user taps trigger words to include in rule. Esp. the last idea depends heavily on the task familiarity and training - it sounds you have a rather specialized task which is ...
