What's the best way to search the C++ API documentation?
I'm pulling my hair out trying to navigate through the API docs. Is there a simple, direct, concise way to find documentation of a function (or all matching functions if there are multiple functions with the same name) without knowing the class in which the function(s) is defined? For example: How would I find the API documentation for "FindObject()", not knowing what class(es) implement it?
I'm looking for a programming reference, not a tutorial, not a getting started guide, not answers to previously posted questions.
Any suggestions appreciated, thanks!

So the best way to do this, and what I do when I need to reference something in the API, is to visit our documentation page, perform a search for the function I'm looking for, and then select the API filter that will appear under the search bar after you enter your text and press the search button.
Check the screenshot below for an example of what I'm talking about. Once you've performed your search, you'll see those filters appear. Then, select the highlighted API category to filter the results to strictly API reference.
Let me know if you have any further questions regarding this.
Have a great day
