Questions for in-line block for this course

What does inline-block do in this case? at 9:40 in the video


At the end of video, he's got the display: inline-block; - But I delete it and put it back and both seems same effect. Why do we even need it?

@media (min-width: 769px) { .inln { width: auto; display: inline-block; } }

Hey Peter!

As you can see at the end of the video, in this particular instance he's using inline-block to display the buttons at the bottom of the form differently depending on the screen size. Without changing the display, the buttons would not show up next to each other on larger screens. I'm not entirely sure why it would have the same effect if you comment the line out unless you've not refreshed the page or have inserted another line in that would achieve the same effect. Remember to save and refresh the page after each change to see it take effect on the page itself!

Happy coding!
