Per the following code and following URL:

http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=1638344&page=1

I'm trying to add to my knowledge and attempt to call the event from another form called frmDash (WHICH DOES NOT HAVE A SUBFORM AT ALL).  Thus I have to adjust the syntax.

The event called txtColor_DblClick itself is also described below which is directly comes from frmDash itself.

How may I adjust the syntax on Dash4 to get this to work?
'modDash has...

Public Function Dash4()
On Error GoTo Err_This

  If IsOpen("frmDash") = False Then DoCmd.OpenForm "frmDash"
  
  Call Forms("frmDash").Controls("txtColor").Form.txtColor_DblClick
  'Call Change_Color_Dash
  'Call forms("form name").controls("subform control name").form.ProcedureName
  
Exit_This:
  Exit Function

Err_This:
  Call Error_Action(Err, Err.Description, "modRibbon @ Dash3", Erl())
  Resume Exit_This

End Function

'frmDash has...
Public Sub txtColor_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
On Error GoTo Err_This
  Call Change_Color
Exit_This:
  Exit Sub
  
Err_This:
  Call LOG_ERROR(Err, Err.Description, "frmDash @ txtColor_DblClick", Erl())
  Resume Exit_This
End Sub
