I am working on a windows application.

I need one of my forms to be refreshed every 60 seconds.
I know this can be implemented through a thread but I am not finding a way.
Really appreciate if anyone could provide me with a sample code.

Thanks in advance!

Edited for Grammar and Readability.

Why a thread? If you really need this to occur, set up a class level Timer, with an interval of 60 Seconds, and do the refresh in the Tick event.

Timer refreshTimer = new Timer();
         refreshTimer.Interval = 60000;  //60 seconds in milliseconds
         refreshTimer.Tick += new EventHandler(refreshTimer_Tick);
     void refreshTimer_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)

Spot on, A timer is the way it is.
Take a Timer Control after that
on the form load
timer1.Interval = 60000;
creat a variable = static int t1 = 0;
On timer tick event
private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (t1 == 0)
// Go Update anything
t1 = 1;
// Go update anything<
t1 = 0;
