Hi,

I have a collapsible div with some content that I need to have a "+" "-" next to the header "airplanes" that toggle as well.

Here is what I have so far

  <script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
  
	    <script type="text/javascript">
	        $(function() {
	         $('#toggleair').click(function() {
	    $('.toggleair').toggle();
	    return false;
	});
        });
    </script>



<a href="#" id="toggleair">Airplanes</a><br /><br />
<div class="toggleair">
Cessna<br />
Piper<br />
Douglas</div>

CSS
#toggleair:after {
    content:" -";
}
.toggleair_expand:after {
    content:" +" !important;
}

Open in new window


jQuery
$(function() {
	$('#toggleair').click(function() {
$('#toggleair').toggleClass("toggleair_expand");
	    $('.toggleair').toggle();
	    return false;
	});
        });

Thanks for the reply!

Is there a way for the "+" "-" to be on the other side of the "airplanes" and also to not have the underline (just have the underline under "airplanes")?

Thanks!

This is based on this exact layout, it may need to be changed if you start changing the layout of your code
