can't change InputField text using textComponent

I need to change the main text of an Inputfield without fire the events attached to it (let’s say onValueChange) and so I tryed to assign my text like this:

ifObject.textComponent.text = "text to change";

assuming as written in the manual this is the way to go but, nothing happens. The only way to change text is actually

ifObject.text = "this changes for sure";

Am I doing something wrong or what?

there’s a method for this now

it’s called SetTextWithoutNotify

so for you, ifObject.SetTextWithoutNotify(“bleh!”);
