Can you create a countdown timer with GetTimer?

The purpose of all timer helpers is just to send a normal or ajax reuest to an action method when the programmed time expires. This way some information in the page may be periodically updated with fresh data coming from the server. This is the only purpose of timer helpers.

I have not understood what do you mean with "countdown" timer but if you need just to display a count down on the screen you can use simply the setTimeout and Interval standard javascript function to periodically decrease a counter.
