I’m having a problem with testing your Function, it doesn’t seem to like this Parameter
List ( NAME_FRONT_PANEL ; GetFrontPanels ) ;

Maybe you could post an example file to help me follow your explanation?

The "List" part is the recursion part of this function.
What kind of problem do you have?

Have you set object names on every panel object? It's required.
