I would suggest you to start with the simple things first
Read a switch
Read two switches
Switch an LED on or off
Blink an LED
Combine all of the above.
We can help you better if you:
Tell us which development kit you are using CY8C-030? FirstTouch???
Explain how switches and LEDs are connected
Attaching a complete project here, so that we all can have a look at. To do so, use
Creator->File->Create Workspace Bundle (minimal)
and attach the resulting file.
Have you try the example projects coming with the creator and also the videos from Cypress?
