In SSRS, how do I change the text in a textbox based on the visability toggle status?

I am using a text box as the toggle switch to show and hide a graph held in a rectangle control. The text in this box states "Open Graph". When I click on the [ + ] and the graph is revealed  I want the text box  to say "Close Graph".

Can this be done?

unfortunately, the Reporting Services are not even-driven and that's what you want in this case. After report was rendered, it's pretty much static HTML and not interactive like applications.

I was going to offer you a work around, but checked it and it didn't work. The idea was having two textboxes one on the top of each other and have their visibility toggled by each other as well. So if one is visible (Show Graph) the other one is hidden (Hide Graph) and vice versa. Unfortunately, it didn't work as if you set one of them to be hidden, the other one is not shown either even if hidden is set to false.

So, to avoid confusion, I'd probably have a parameter instead of a texbox with two values: Show Graph, Hide Graph. And I would toggle visibility of the graph based on the parameter value.

Many thanks Yurich.
In the end I did away with the idea and just gave it a title. But I will have ago at the parameters idea later.
