# [texhax] Memoir: running chapter titles

I'm trying to create a book style that has the Chapter-name,
chapter-number and chapter-title on the left header and the
corresponding section stuff on the right. I've got the section stuff
working, but I can't figure out what variable holds the running  chapter
title.

In other words, I want the left page header to be:
Chapter 3: Background
where
Chapter = \@chapapp
3 = \thechapter
Background = the running chapter title (Background in this example)

I can get the header I want when I use \f at rhdr, but it doesn't compile
cleanly, and complains it doesn't know what \f at rhdr is, even tho it
works correctly when I examine the dvi file.

So, is there a variable that will compile cleanly that holds the
chaptertitle variable? Here's the relevant code:

\@chapapp\hspace{3pt}\thechapter:\smlspc \f at rhdr} %% (works but doesn't
compile cleanly)
pagestyle

TIA
