# inline uppercase chapter title

Hi I want to put the chapters title in one line and uppercase, I found this code that makes it inline but how ti make it uppercase too

code:

\usepackage{titlesec}
\titleformat{\chapter}[hang]
{\normalfont\huge\bfseries}{\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter:}{1em}{}

• Instead of {} try {\MakeUppercase} – egreg Jul 3 '15 at 17:51
• thanks this works for the chapter name, I need the chapter number uppercase too – efirvida Jul 3 '15 at 17:54
• \MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename} – egreg Jul 3 '15 at 17:55
• didnt work the result of these is "Chapter 1: CHAPTERMarco Teórico" and i want something like "CHAPTER 1: MARCO TERÓICO" – efirvida Jul 3 '15 at 18:00

Use a couple of \MakeUppercase instructions:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}

\usepackage{titlesec}

\titleformat{\chapter}[hang]
{\normalfont\Large\bfseries}
{\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename}\ \thechapter:}
{.5em}
{\MakeUppercase}

\begin{document}

\mainmatter

\chapter{Marco Teórico}

\end{document}


I used \Large instead of \huge because I got an overfull line with the latter. I also reduced the space between the colon and the title.
