solo.searchButton("ButtonToSearch", 2);

For Text : 
-To search a specific text in a text area(Edit text object). It will scroll automatically if needed. 
solo.searchEditText("SearchText");

-To search a specific text in full display. It will scroll automatically if needed.
solo.searchText("SearchText");

solo.searchText("SearchText", 2,true);

Note :
-All of these functions returns true if the search item is found, false on not found. So, it is useful for validating items on the screen.
-All text that are used as parameter, will be handled as Regular Expression searching.
-In all Match number,  0 means one or more expected matching
