The maximize button (displayed in the titlebar of each windowed application under fluxbox) maximizes / unmaximizes the window in three ways:
Button 1 (left mouse click) causes full screen maximization
button 2 (middle click) maximizes the window only vertically
button 3 (right click) maximizes the window only horizontally

Wow! A genius at work here. I never knew that.
The Kernel has my back covered.
AMD desktop FX-8320 ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 nVidia GeForce 730 GT 8 Gb memory
MSI laptop S6000 i5-460M 4 Gb ram
A great mind is something to get terribly wasted.

Iirc you can change those functions in the fluxbox configs as well. I have them mapped to control + (shift,alt,super) + enter.

Dave, are you using fluxbox v1.38 (or you compiled the unreleased git.fluxbox.org code, or pulled from deb experimental repo) ?
If not, although user can assign a keybind for “maximizeHorizontal”, doing so would be supplemental;
it wouldn’t affect the hardcoded behavior assigned to the maximize button’s on_release event.
The newer versions (not the 1.3.5 version provided in debian stretch, and in antiX17)
do, in fact, support customizable actions for the titlebar maximize button and the minimize button
(provides opportunity to chain commands, e.g. “maximize AND play a sound”, “minimize, then raise+focus previous window”)
Another supplemental way to expose the maximizeHorizonal command:
edit your ~/.fluxbox/windowmenu
[begin] [shade] [stick] [maximize] [maximizevertical] (maximize Vert) [maximizehorizontal] (maximize Horiz) [iconify] [raise] [lower] ### CAREFUL -- unless you have a created a "ToggleDecor" keybind, ### you'll need to use <code>pkill</code> or <code>xkill</code> or fbcommand to close the window #[setdecor Border] (undecorate) [settitledialog] [sendto] [layer] [alpha] [extramenus] [separator] [close] [end]
(note: the above is the default windowmenu config provided in v1.3.8-ski)
