how can I use the counter to measure the counts per second on MSP430FG477 using the counter. I have input signal coming in and I need to measure the counts per second using MSP430FG477

For anything that has to do with counting you normally set up a timer. If you want to measure counts per second, then it depends on the required accuracy if you need an external crystal for the timer, or if the internal DCO is precise enough for you (in most cases I would prefer the crystal in such an application). Depending on the resolution you want to have, you must choose a proper crystal frequency. I would start with having a look at the code examples TI has made. There are a lot of examples that describe using the timer module.
hey its the counter query. I got a no clue where to start with and I have limited time to finish this before 15th of this month and I need your expertise to help me please. The link is https://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/msp430/f/166/t/436274 I have also attached my mezzainine card schematics which holds MSP430FG477 and have also attached the pdf file describing my project ( I need to do the detector event rate (count rate) part means calculate the count rate using counter)JatinKhilani.ResearchProject.pdf

>I got a no clue where to start with
You always shall try to start with.. reading manual. In case of your chip it is User's Guide
Also HP/Agilent/Keysight have excellent application note about frequency counters

Well... you have to hurry up
