How to find Vias in Pads

Looking for ideas on how to find vias that are in pads through automation.  I figured the Via object would have a method within to self identify but it looks like Via.IsSMD is used for something else.

 

I'm thinking I'm going to have to find all the parts and iterate through each pad extents and search for a via within.  Seems overly complicated and seems like there should be an easier way since you have to configure the tool to allow vias in specific pads to begin with.  Thoughts?
