I am developing a chat application using c# 3.5 and SQL Server 2008. I am using a timer control to get new message, new user request etc. the timer interval is 1000ms. Now my problem is that Ul doe not give Response properly.

Please help me to make the UI more responsive.

Please do not use textspeak in your questions, it makes them unecessarily hard to read.
What do you mean the UI does not give the response properly, is it failing to show someting, is it partial data or is it just slow. Can you also post some code (use code tags!) so we can see what is likely to be wrong.

It sounds like you're running everything in the main thread. I'd recommend using either System.Threading or BackgroundWorker to run the Timer:[^][^]
This is correct; if OP does not do threads it's hard to achieve anything good; there is a lot more to it though. My 5.
