This is quite possible, but -- do yourself a favor, don't do it. What to irritate your users?

Hi Ubaid,
Reference System.Threading, add an AJAX timer control and a ScriptManager to your aspx page.

<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">

    <asp:timer runat="server" ID="tmr1" Interval="300000" ontick="tmr1_Tick"></asp:timer>
    <h1><asp:Label Text="" ID="lblTestTimer" runat="server"></asp:Label></h1>

in timer_tick event put the following codes:
protected void tmr1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
            lblTestTimer.Text = DateTime.Now.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss tt");
            lblTestTimer.Visible = true;
            lblTestTimer.Visible = false;

This will do the trick what you want...Cheers !!

Happy Coding :)
