Visual Studio 2005 Windows application

I wrote the windows application that accesses the database, runs stored procedure and displays the dataset via DataGridView.  The user asks the data is to be refreshed every 15 minutes.  
I need help to code this.  The way the application works now is it starts and displays the form with a datagridview.

Add timer control to form (in ToolBox/Components) on the left in the IDE.

Set the timer control's enabled property to true.
Set the timer control's interval property to 900,000 (1000 ticks is a second, so 900K is 15 minutes)
Double click the timer control which will take you to the event that fires every time the timer "ticks".
In this event handler, call the code that refreshes the DataGridView
 private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
      RefreshMyDataGridView();
    }

Open in new window
