    do you mean you need a tutorial on how to design buttons and controls for win32 application?

    honestly, you don't. MSDN provides you everything you need to build win32 application.

    It has all the functions all the controls.....everything

    Also, micorosft visual studio has a designer that allows you to visually design the application..... so you won't right any code except you have to call the controls by their ID

    That was not his question.

    I'm not aware of any form designer for win32 outside of the one in Visual Studio. In practice though, I've found that the form designer is pretty much unnecessary. It is pretty easy to adjust the size and location of controls in code, and this way you have the added benefit to being able to dynamically resize controls when the window frame is resized.
