Provide the ability to use custom editor for simulation input data

Simulation created  with a custom data provider often use input data set in the definition of the simulation. They are used to control the behavior of the data provider  during the simulation. This input might have values that comes from another service or depend directly on the source used in the data provider.  
Example filter on a start date /end date that are a list of existing dates found in a database, select from a list of values coming for a service  

With a custom input data editor the provider of the simulation would be able to control how an input data value is set.
