Use the File::read() method:

file_path = “path to your file.txt”

file_contents = File.read(file_path)

ie.text_field(:name, “JMSText”).set(file_contents)

if i change the text in notepad …it shoudl take the new value

With the above approach, you must rerun your Ruby program after changing
the text in notepad.

If you wish to have your Ruby program respond to changes in the text
file while it is still running, then take a look at libinotify.
