Selenium WebDriver: I want to overwrite value in field instead of appending to it with sendKeys using Java

In WebDriver, if I use sendKeys it will append my string to the value that already exists in the field. I can’t clear it by using clear() method because the second I do that, the webpage will throw an error saying that it has to be between 10 and 100. So I can’t clear it or an error will be thrown before I can put in the new value using sendKeys, and if I sendKeys it just appends it to the value already there.

Is there anything in WebDriver that lets you overwrite the value in the field?

You can also clear the field before sending it keys.

element.sendKeys("Some text here")
