I'm new to using Talend and want to use it for generating data. I am creating data with columns for gender, first name, last name etc.
I want to be able to choose first name from a male or female list based on whether or not the gender column is male or female. Is there an easy way I can pass the value generated for the gender column to my function for first name? Or do I have to add a mapping component? Any help appreciated

See screenshots below - I am trying to pass the value that gets generated for Gender to the function used for generating First Name. I know I can call the getGender function from the FirstName function but this generates a new random gender and not necessarily the one generated for the Gender column. Can you advise me how I can pass the generated Gender to the First Name function please.
