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

Fancy Chapter Headings

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? Commented Jun 6, 2013 at 19:13

Here you go.

\documentclass[oneside]{book}
