hello experts,

I have a web form and after filling details on the form and if I hit submit, I am calling a function called refreshGridView()

This function will set a datasource and do databind.

As on form submit I am inserting into couple of other databases, I want to call the refreshGridView after some delay.

a delay of 30 seconds and then refresh the grid. I tried various options like looking through just to cause some delay about it is binding the grid before the backend job is done. Please help
RefreshDelay=10000
 'If RefreshDelay > 0 Then
            '    For kt = 1 To RefreshDelay
            '        str = kt.ToString()
            '    Next
            'End If

Try using Threading.Thread.Sleep(30000) and see if it gives you the needed delay.

For performance factor I cannot say much but I think it is pretty much standard to use the Thread.Sleep construct to delay the execution of the current task/thread within a process. Further, as per my understanding, it will not affect or mess other things even other requests to the same page by other users, so if it worked for you try it for some time but keep monitoring the performance. One thing you might have to handle if you are on WinForms is the ability to manage User Interface appropriately.
Further, try avoiding this delay in your applications especially the web applications as it will annoy the applicaiton users to wait for such long times. If the update of other databases/tables does not affect the refreshed gridview, try putting the code for updating in a separate thread and immediately return the control back to the user after refreshing the gridview.
