[ad#block] Electrical Question: How is a Dimmer and Fan Control Switch wired for my Ceiling Fan?

Re: Hunter Breeze fan & light switch. Replacing with Hunter model 27182 dimmer & fan control switch. 4 wires come out of wall. 2 black 2 white.( with ground) Both white wires are connected together, leaving the black wires to be hooked up to the new switch.

The new switch has a black, red & blue wire ( green for ground).
Which wires go where?
