incrementation of a timer by an input signal

i'm trying ton increment a timer in timing mode at each rising of a signal which arrive on an other pin
here my code :

    /*Configuration de la pin1 du portA(arriver du signal detection de traverse)*/
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Pin = GPIO_Pin_1;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Mode = GPIO_Mode_IN;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_PuPd = GPIO_PuPd_DOWN;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Speed = GPIO_Speed_40MHz;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Pin = GPIO_Pin_6;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Mode = GPIO_Mode_OUT;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_PuPd = GPIO_PuPd_DOWN;
    GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Speed = GPIO_Speed_40MHz;

    /* timing Mode configuration */
    TIM_OCInitStruct.TIM_OCMode = TIM_OCMode_Timing;
    TIM_OCInitStruct.TIM_OutputState = TIM_OutputState_Enable;
    TIM_OCInitStruct.TIM_OCPolarity = TIM_OCPolarity_High;
    TIM_OCInitStruct.TIM_Pulse = CCR1Val;
    TIM_OC1Init(TIM4, &TIM_OCInitStruct);

    /*timer2 chanel 2 pin PA1*/
    TIM_ICInitStruct.TIM_Channel = TIM_Channel_2;
    TIM_ICInitStruct.TIM_ICPolarity = TIM_ICPolarity_Rising;
    TIM_ICInitStruct.TIM_ICSelection  = TIM_ICSelection_DirectTI;
    TIM_ICInitStruct.TIM_ICPrescaler = TIM_ICPSC_DIV1;
    TIM_ICInitStruct.TIM_ICFilter = 0x0;
    TIM_ICInit(TIM2, &TIM_ICInitStruct);
        /*enable the TIM counter*/
    TIM_Cmd(TIM4, ENABLE);

    /*Configures the External clock Mode1: le compteur compte à chaque front montant d'une horloge externe ici
    l'entrée sur laquel il y à le signal qui detecte les traverses*/
    TIM_ETRClockMode1Config(TIM2, TIM_ExtTRGPSC_OFF, TIM_ExtTRGPolarity_NonInverted,0x00);

  while (1){
    LCD_GLASS_DisplayString( (unsigned char *) str );

but it doesn't work and i don't know why
i think it is the function which Configures the External clock in Mode1
could you help me please !!
