    What is the class of text object? What is the class, where search() and actionPerformed() methods are located?

    You have to post enough information so that we can help. Remember that we cannot read minds nor see code not shown. Also please avoid using non-standard abbreviations in your questions here. You're making helping you more difficult than it needs to be by doing this.
