I use Dreamweaver CS3 although the functionality has been the same pretty much since Dreamweaver MX. Anyway in that you can select a folder on the right, and in your search dialog, chose 'Search selected files' and that will search (or replace) whatever you want. So I use that to search for variables or functions whatever (that I know what they are), and to discover what I have access to I use the tech docs.
You only really need to look at the tech docs once, find the function whatever, copy it's documentation from it's source file into your plugin or skin whatever, and you are set cruising along easy street.
