Learn CSS Variables by Building a City Skyline - Step 51

**Tell us what’s happening:**I keep getting this error msg: Sorry, your code does not pass. You’re getting there.
Here’s my complete line: background: linear-gradient(var(–building-color2) 0% 6%), var(–window-color2) 6% 9%;
You should use --building-color2 from 0% to 6%.
Describe your issue in detail here. I also get an error telling me to set a background property for .bb2b. That’s exactly (I think) what I have done. I need help please as I do not want to restart.

Your code so far

Challenge: Learn CSS Variables by Building a City Skyline - Step 51

Link to the challenge:

Welcome to the community!

This step asks us to place the various stops for the color change.
Here is the example provided in the instructions showing how to enter the various stops.

linear-gradient(
  var(--first-color) 0%,
  var(--first-color) 40%,
  var(--second-color) 40%,
  var(--second-color) 80%
);

Notice the color value for each stop.

We should use this as a reference on how to enter our first and second colors in this step.
Enter two separate values for each color.

I hope this helps you.

Keep up the good progress! :slight_smile:

G-N-G,
Thanks so much. I saw that but as I searched I found examples that put the 2 rules together. I thought that was the way to do it. Is it possible to put the 2 together like this: background: var(–building-color2 0%, var(–building-color2 6%)). I’m a bit of an advanced rookie and I know CSS always has shortcuts!

Good to hear it helped.
I do know there are short cuts, too.
I was just providing the way to have the system recognize the step.

I would guess that you are much more experienced that I am in the field. But, I still try my best to help when I can help, or offer a way to resolve the problem.

Keep up your great progress @rickliebau!
