Clear text from text area using selenium WebDriver

0 votes

I have some tests case using which I'm checking that the proper error message appears when the text in certain fields is invalid. 

One check for validity is that a certain text area element is not empty.

If this textarea already has text in it, how can I tell selenium to clear the field?

I used the below code:

driver.get_element_by_id('foo').clear_field()
