Using cross compile in windows for ARM use.

Is it possible to design code in windows and compile for ARM used?
If can, does anyone has a document or website refer to this request?
Thanks in Advanced!

Yes, it is possible. In general you need to find a cross-compiler for ARM device that works also on windows. From there you can start. If you have already a development board you can check the support of the manufacturer for cross-compilers and their advice.
I have done this for beaglebone and RPi. However, personally I have chosen to go through desktop linux in a VirtualBox, because both ARM devices used also linux OS. Therefore, cross-compiling on a desktop linux was more straight forward.
The cross-compilation on windows is also possible, but seem to be a bit more complicated.

As @koahnig said , maybe using a VM for your development machine will save you time and headaches, since most of the toolchains for cross-compiling are available for Linux as first option
