find all sub vis that are set to show front panel when called



I have inherited a very large messy sphagetti code of about 1500 vis, 

i need to refactor it to a maintainable state. one requirement is to give a make over on the front panel with a logo on all the subVIs that pop-up when called.


is there an easy way to list all vis that are set to "show front panel when called" property in the VI properties ctrl+i menu ?

You can read that property with a property node. However there is more than one way to open a subVIs front panel.
