      Description

      Original Request:
      Javascript get variables/test button "misbehaves"

      In the modified javascript step the "get variables" and "test" button sometimes don't do what is expected. The reason for this is at when these are used Spoon has to fill in an example row with trash values ("test value test value ...") and if the script assumes e.g. that the input is numeric you will get an "EvaluatorException".

      It would be nicer if people could fill in own values for the example row, preferably prefilled with some matching data (numbers, string, dates, ...)

      Attach example shows the problem. You can run the transformation/preview the dummy, but the get variables/test button doesn't work.
