I have a function on my WinForm that basically just loads a DataGrid.

I want the user to be able to hit the F5 button to refresh the grid if they want.  IS this possible?

On KeyDown or KeyUp event you can do:

If e.KeyCode = Keys.F5 Then
  ' your code
End If

Don't forget to set the form property KeyPreview = True
