How would I center the buttons with the class .inln after the browser meets the criteria for the media query?


Above is the code. I know this has been asked before, but I am wondering if there is a "cleaner" solution. I tried adding margins/padding, however there was no change to the positioning of the submit or reset buttons.

I'm not sure exactly where you would like the buttons to be placed or how much spacing you want between them but you could always try flexbox. It seems cleaner to me but it's newer so not so widely supported.

ā˜… Start by wrapping your buttons in a <span> and give it a class called flex.

<span class="flex">
    <input class="btn default inln" type="submit" value="Submit">
    <input class="btn error inln" type="reset" value="Reset">

ā˜… Go to you stylesheet and add the following code:

.flex {
    display: flex;
    justify-content: space-around;

Thank You! I haven't used flex yet. Seems to work fine. I will definitely keep this in mind for future use.

If flexbox doesn't suit you try adding:

position: relative;
left: 30%;

to the .inln class
