Set value of input instead of sendKeys() - selenium webdriver nodejs

I have a long string to test and sendKeys() takes too long. When I tried to set the value of the text the program crashes. I know the Selenium sendKeys() is the best way to test the actual user input, but for my application it takes too much time. So I am trying to avoid it.

Is there a way to set the value right away?

See this quick example:

var webdriver = require('selenium-webdriver');
var driver = new webdriver.Builder().
withCapabilities
(webdriver.Capabilities.chrome()).
build
();
driver
.get('http://www.google.com');
// find the search input field on google.com
inputField
= driver.findElement(webdriver.By.name('q'));
var longstring = "test"; // not really long for the sake of this quick example
// this works but is slow
inputField
.sendKeys(longstring);
// no error but no values set
inputField
.value = longstring;
// Output: TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'setAttributes'
inputField
.setAttributes("value", longstring);

Try to set the element’s value using the executeScript method:

webdriver.executeScript("document.getElementById('elementID').setAttribute('value', 'new value for element')");
