Toggle Div Based On Height Not Show/Hide Div

I'm looking for a way to expand / collapse a div based on height.

For example, on page load 300px of the height of a div is visible, then on click expand to 800px. Using two separate containers for this isn't an option.

A smooth jquery solution would be optimal but not necessary.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thanks Hielo, that's great! Is there any way that I can place a trigger outside the div?
