Search of what, exactly? The file's static contents? If so, it can be done, but only through a script that either searches the file itself or opens the Advanced Search dialog and runs a search through it.

It's like there's a bunch of data, and I want the user to just type in the text field I guess then click a search button, it will display the data the user was looking for. I hope you do understand my objective. And, I know the advanced search dialog, I preferred not to use it. Thank you.

What kind of "data"? Where is it saved in the PDF file? How should it be searched? How should the results be presented? A lot of info is missing there...

Without seeing the actual file it will be very hard to give you further advice, but at any rate it won't be a trivial task. It would require the development of a custom-made tool. If you don't have a high level of control over Acrobat JS I would recommend hiring a professional to write this script for you.
