Why would this not work? transition: border-radius .6s linear 1s ;

?

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.box {
  border-radius: 0;
 transition: border-radius .6s linear 1s ;
}

.box:hover {
    background: #F08080;
    border-radius: 50%;
}

Why would this not work?
transition: border-radius .6s linear 1s ;

Hi Stephen, I think the issue is the challenge doesn't accept shorthand syntax, you need to use longhand like so:

.box {
    -webkit-transition-property: border-radius;
    -webkit-transition-duration: .6s; 
    -webkit-transition-delay: 1s;
    -webkit-transition-timing-function: linear; 
}

Note you also need to include the -webkit prefix

hope that helps!!

Ah perfect thanks grace that worked a treat, just to check for this to actually work wouldn't you need to set border radius t0 0 under the .box class as well?

oooh that's an interesting question, no you don't have to set the border-radius to 0 in the .box class as it's default value is already 0. You can see that for yourself here

However I checked it out on workspaces and it works both without setting it AND setting it....so if it makes more sense to you to set it to 0 yourself then go ahead! :)
