Python – To send threekeys using send_keys() in selenium python webdriver


I am trying to type a float number into a textbox with default value 0.00.But it tries to get appended instead of overwriting it.I tried with .clear() and then send_keys('123.00') but still it gets appended.
Then i tried with send_keys(Keys.CONTROL+'a','123.00').It updates 0.00 only.

Any help is really appreciated.

I've had good results with:

from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys

element.send_keys(Keys.CONTROL, 'a')

If that doesn't work it may have something to do with the code in the web page.
