You can either select a package to peruse from the drop down on the right,
or search for something using the search box in the top middle. I am
working on a default page which will display help. That is, properties,
methods, events link to the sidebar, search using the search box, select a
package from the combo box, use the tabs to navigate a unit and so on.

The search box can be used find most stuff in the rtl, fcl, and lcl, but
you need to type a partial identifier and submit using enter to see
possible matches. Each time someone picks an item from a search its rank is
increased and it moves further to the top of the list.

Regarding the normal help (
http://lazarus-ccr.sourceforge.net/docs/lcl/graphics/tbitmap.html), AFAIK
the it doesn't have a search index feature. For the creative search method
is google search -> "identifier site:lazarus-ccr.sourceforge.net", and then
it only searches the lcl package. To search rtl you need to use "identifier
site:freepascal.org", and then you run into the problem that it isn't
isolating the rtl documentation, it's searching the entire fpc site. Sure
the IDE has F1, but that required you to be using the IDE and it only goes
to a completed identifier, not a search able list of partial ones.
