How to increase the speed of setText() in textArea


I’m trying to find a way to increase the speed at which Katalon writes in a textArea.

When using the setText() method the result is that the text is “typed” in the textbox rather than “copy-pasted” in it.

To remedy that, in a textbox, it’s possible to just change the text/value attribute. However, in a textarea, this isn’t possible.

Is there a way to speed up (simulate a copy-paste of the text) in a textarea?

Thanks a lot

You could change the innerHTML property using Javascript (with WebUI.executeJavaScript).
The text will be set immediately, without the typing behaviour.
