I am working on a tool that will eventually be used to create a pdf from multiple mxds (a thematic map book). The tool will run a a server geoprocessing service. The basic workflow is below

- user draws a polygon (feature set)
- for each mxd... zoom to extent of the feature set and export layout view of the mxd to pdf.
- compile into one pdf.

how do I access the values from the extent of the "feature set" so I can modify the data frame extent in each mxd?
