Clear method clears the value but retains and when send keys new value is passed the text box shows previous value + new value in selenium Appium. Kindly suggest. Version:java-client-5.0.4 Appium Server:1.5.0 Selenium: 3.5.3


I am automating Call forwarding in an Android Device 7.0.I tried this but it did not work out.
Is Appium having Bug in it?
Kindly help on urgent basis.Because i have seen people getting response here in 1 year.

Method in Java which i wrote to clear and send keys:
public void clearTextBox(WebElement element,String text) throws Exception

here above text is Number : "9560038686"

My Desired Capabilities:
DesiredCapabilities cap=new DesiredCapabilities();
cap.setCapability(“deviceName”, devicename);
cap.setCapability(“platformVersion”, platformVersion);
cap.setCapability(“platformName”, “Android”);
cap.setCapability(“skipUnlock”, false);
cap.setCapability(“no-reset”, “true”);
cap.setCapability(“full-reset”, “false”);
cap.setCapability(“appPackage”, “”);
cap.setCapability(“appActivity”, “”);
driver=new AndroidDriver(new URL(“”), cap);
driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(15, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

This is the Issue post send keys:
