You will need to get the name of the channelBox control, first. If you created the channelBox, you should already know that, if you want the main Maya channelBox.... I'm not sure how to get that name.

Once you know the name you can use:

channelBox -q -selectedMainAttributes <channelBox name>;


-selectedShapeAttributes, -selectedHistoryAttributes, an finally -selectedOutputAttributes.

I'll let you know if I figure out the name of the Maya channelBox.
