Please refer this code.... this is for Loop through for Textboxes. try modifting this for Panels.

private void SetTextBoxBackColor(Control Page, Color clr)
     foreach (Control ctrl in Page.Controls)
          if (ctrl is TextBox)
              ((TextBox)(ctrl)).BackColor = clr;
              if (ctrl.Controls.Count > 0)
                   SetTextBoxBackColor(ctrl, clr);

Private Sub SetTextBoxBackColor(ByVal Page As Control, _
      ByVal clr As Color)
    For Each ctrl As Control In Page.Controls
        If TypeOf ctrl Is TextBox Then
            CType(ctrl, TextBox).BackColor = clr
            If ctrl.Controls.Count > 0 Then
                SetTextBoxBackColor(ctrl, clr)
            End If
        End If
End Sub


Thanks, but how do I get all my panels into the ControlCollection ctls?

You don't have to.  All TOP level controls are in the page's Controls collection, and the recursion makes sure that all the lower level controls are looked at as well.  All the controls are found, but only the controls of type "Panel" cause you to take action.
