    1. Have the timer control in your application or have a variable of type Timer.
    2. Assign a event to the Timer tick event.
    3. Enable the timer and start when you think you need the event.
    4. After sufficient time elapse your function will be called.

    I managed before you said above but thanks Shabbir. I did above now how to show current system time on the form at some specific position. Following is some sample of code I have
    Code:
    public Form1()
            {
                InitializeComponent();
    
                // Instantiate the timer
                timer1 = new Timer();
    
                // Setup timer
                timer1.Interval = 1000; //1000ms = 1sec
                timer1.Tick += new EventHandler(timer1_Tick);
                timer1.Start();
              
            }
    
    Code:
     private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                if (sender == timer1)
                {
                    DateTime.Now.ToLongDateString();
                }
            }
