As a beginner, it probably isn't a great idea to try write your own GUI. GUIs are quite tricky. You might be better off googling and finding one written for you. Unfortunately I have no suggestions, I haven't really used any in the kind of depth it would require to make a recommendation.

I think people are having a hard time figuring out what you actually need?

Do you want to know how to program a button you can press? Do you want it to look realistic? Like do you want it to have an up, hover and pressed state?

Are you talking about programming all this? Or are you talking about hopw to make them look good using a program like Photoshop?

Move the button down and to the left about 2 pixels, then draw a dark border on its left and upper sides. I'm heading out of the house now; I'll follow up with graphical examples in a few hours when I get to the office.
