Jquery graphic and text swap

Posted on 2010-09-01
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hi, I am building a page which uses Jquery slidetoggle to reveal a map when clicked. The text on the box initially says 'View the interactive map' and has an arrow pointing downwards.

What I want is when the map is visible (once clicked), the words to then change to 'Close the interactive map' and the arrow to change upwards.

My page is here -

Can anyone help?
<script type="text/javascript">
       $(function() {
            $("#toggle").click(function() {

Try this:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
	$("#toggle").click(function() {
				var img = $("#toggle").find('img').attr('src','img/ArrowDown.png')
				$("#toggle").html(' Hide the Interactive Map').prepend(img)
				var img = $("#toggle").find('img').attr('src','img/ArrowUp.png')
				$("#toggle").html(' View the Interactive Map').prepend(img)
