Test Solution

You can use the send_keys command to add text to your input fields. See example below –

        self.send_keys('.contact-email input', '')
        self.send_keys('.contact-phone input', '123456789')
        self.send_keys('.contact-message textarea', 'This is a test message')

SeleniumBase provides additional capabilities with the send_keys command such as waiting for element to be visible, making sure the element is in the ready state, etc…
