# Fancy Chapter Headings - onesided version?

I would like to create titles of my single sided thesis like the one given in books (and can be seen in the following link), I tried to change the code given by Martin in the following link, but didn't get the desired output

This is Martin's code:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{graphics}

\usepackage{titlesec}
\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
{\normalfont\Large\raggedleft}
{\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename}%
\rlap{ \resizebox{!}{1.5cm}{\thechapter} \rule{5cm}{1.5cm}}}
{10pt}{\Huge}
\titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{30pt}{20pt}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\setcounter{chapter}{2}
\begin{document}

\chapter{Implementation}
\lipsum
\end{document}


Here is what it currently looks like:

I am trying to change the printed output from right to left side, how should i modify the code? I just want to write the black box then chapter number, ENTER then Chapter Name in Centre.

• Hard to tell what the problem might be with such little information. Which document class do you use? Can you show us a minimal complete document with your current attempt? – Gonzalo Medina Jun 6 '13 at 19:13
