SlideUp Slide down automatically

I'm trying to use script.aculo.us to slide up/down a panel - I want to use the same area to drop it down if it's up, and vice versa.  Is there a built in way to do this?  I've got the following hack working, but it's kinda ugly.

<div onclick="if (contDown) Effect.SlideUp('content', { duration: 0.5 }); else Effect.SlideDown('content', { duration: 0.5 }); contDown = !contDown;">

I'd say that's about as concise as you're going to get (give or take a few characters).  If you aren't using scriptaculous for too much else, you could try Mootools.  Not to steal users from scriptaculous, but I have had a better experience so far with Mootools, and it has a toggle function exactly like what you're looking for :) ...

scriptaculous is built into rails, so I'll stick with it.  Thanks!
