Can I make a timer appear on screen?

I’m very new to Gdevelop but have done some basic coding before. Is there a way to get a countdown timer visible on screen? It doesn’t seem like there’s an easy way to do it and I’m wracking my brain for how I would get that working at all.

Add a text object to the scene, Then add a Modify the text action, and next to the value field, click on the blue button.
A timer is a number, so you’ll have to go to Conversion first, to convert it to text, and then pick your timer.
