# Tick Count (ticks) (G Dataflow)

Returns the value of the tick timer.

The base reference time (tick zero) is undefined. That is, you cannot convert tick timer value to a real-world time or date. Be careful when you use this node in comparisons because the value of the tick timer wraps from (2^32)-1 to 0. You can also change the value at which the tick timer wraps by changing the size of the output integer.

## tick timer value
