Access 2010 need to know how to reference the text box name from Control Source

I have a text box on a form that calls a function in the Control Source that i want to pass the text box's name so within the function i can set backcolor, forecolor...

I don't want to have to hard code the text box's name within the call to the function.

=ELookup(??, status)

Public Function ELookup(textboxname as ?control?, Status As String)
If Status = "x" then
   textboxname.forecolor = vbred
  textboxname.forecolor = vbGreen
End Function

would i also have to pass the form name within the function?

You can't do that, but - though very different -  you may be able to use Conditional Formatting.
