reading pwm inputs

Hi everyone

I have some silly newbie doubts on stm32f2 series
I had downloaded the standard peripheral library and was looking at the sample codes in 
\STM32F4xx_DSP_StdPeriph_Lib_V1.0.0\Project\STM32F4xx_StdPeriph_Examples\TIM\PWM_Input

My doubt is in the lines
GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Mode  = GPIO_Mode_AF;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Speed = GPIO_Speed_100MHz;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_OType = GPIO_OType_PP;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_PuPd  = GPIO_PuPd_UP ;

When we want to read a pwm signal, why are we setting the pin as an output?

Thanks
Srinath
