The Goal:
I want to edit the text from the keyboard without using the mouse.

I want to *enter* Text Editing mode in an active text layer (analogous to double-click on the icon [T] or click on the text box).

How to write a script using Adobe ExtendScript Toolkit CC and JavaScript, which will *enter* Text Editing mode.

Now I have to edit the text (without using the keyboard using scripts) looks like this:
var mytextcontents = app.activeDocument.activeLayer.name;
mytextcontents2 = prompt("Please enter text", mytextcontents);

if (mytextcontents2 != null) {
app.activeDocument.activeLayer.textItem.contents = mytextcontents2;
This method has disadvantages, so I'm looking for a solution of his problem.
