I'm new in MQL4 and metaeditor. Where can I find all the parameters for keywords/functions/etc, for example setindexstyle ?

In Metaeditor, I pressed F1 to start the Help window, and in the search bar I typed setindexstyle, but it says it can't find it. Also, in the www.mql4.com books and documentation pages is no search button. 

So where do I look?
