A string holding the text displayed by the control.
If an edit control works in password mode, that is, it masks its actual text with a pre-defined character, the
wText property contains the actual text rather than the masked text displayed to the user.
After assigning a new value to the
wText property, the insertion point is moved to the beginning of the text.
Note that to change text in an edit control, you can also use the
SetText action. Unlike the
SetText adds an entry to the test log about the performed operation.
If your tested application uses event handlers to detect and handle text changes or keyboard input in edit controls, keep in mind that the
wText property raises only text change events and does not raise keypress events. If the expected events do not occur when you use the
wText property to change a control’s text, use the
Keys action instead.

wText property, see Getting an Edit Control's Text in Desktop Windows Applications.
