How can I change icon when toggle is pressed?

Hey guys I'm just wondering how I would go by changing a glyphicon when the toggle is active? So for example there is a plus at the moment but I would like a minus to appear when the toggle is open.

Here is an example: http://jsfiddle.net/DTcHh/848/

How would I achieve this?

Thanks, Nick :)

You probably want to do something like: .removeClass().addClass() on your glyphicon span.

With your example fiddle that would look something like: $(this).children('span')removeClass(glyphicon glyphicon-plus glyph-plus-toggle).addClass(glyphicon glyphicon-minus glyph-minus-toggle);

Could you show me an example of how you would implement that? When I add it to the code the toggle breaks :(
