CSS CSS Basics (2014) Enhancing the Design With CSS Gradients

using Angles to control direction of gradient

Hi i am trying to use Angles to control the direction of gradient for this Task like below:

.main-header { background-image:linear-gradient(0deg , steelblue, darkslateblue 90%); /* where 0deg creates a bottom to top gradient.*/ } it gives bummer until i use 'to top' like this

.main-header { background-image: linear-gradient(to top, steelblue, darkslateblue 90%); }

is there anything that i am doing wrong with using of 0deg ? Plz correct me.

Thank you

0deg is appropriate syntax. If it is a code challenge, you have to do it exactly as they want to pass.

aah ok, it was a code challenge.

Thank you for the reply

The code challenges have to use a program to determine if the code is correct. Using 0deg is a solution which had not been considered and thus is not checked for. You should give feedback on the code challenge (available at the end) to let them know that there is another solution which should work.

sure Gilbert i do that, thanks for the suggestion
