Enter your character or characters in the search box and press "search". If you know what your chengyu starts with ends with etc you can also search by the specific command (ie 1st character, 4th character) to see only Chinese idioms that have those characters in a specific place. You can view the chengyu and the explanation in either simplified or traditional Chinese. After the list of chengyu is generated, if you click on them you can see more information and the explanation (in Chinese). There is currently no English chengyu explanation. You can also click on the chengyu to get a stroke order for the chengyu.
