Somewhere inside the Free Pascal site you'll find a link to a GTK+ on FPC tutorial which is very good. Actually you can use any GTK+ tutorial you find on the net, because although they are written in C the GTK+ API is the same on Pascal.

Look into www.freepascal.org and www.gtk.org and if you cannot find nothing write me again I'll try to give you some more specific pointers.
