I am a beginner in Appium automation. The application I am testing, have this scenario where I need to tap on Search button from the native keyboard. I have tried with pressKeyCode method but getting this error-

The method pressKeyCode(int) is undefined for the type WebElement

I am using the following Environment-

Appium with Java client 5.0.0-BETA8 
Selenium 3.4.0

I don't know what I am doing wrong? I have tried with earlier Java client for appium as well but nothing has worked so far. Also, is there any workaround other than the pressKeyCode to do this?
