How to populate legend descriptions via a field value, or with arcpy?

Question asked by chagan02 on Feb 2, 2016

Hello all,

 

I am using descriptions to populate my legend since I have better control over wrapping of text.  That said, I have entered all the static symbols' descriptions by hand.  However, I do have a few unpredictable symbols that I need to add dynamically.  Thus, does anyone know how to do one of the following.

 

Populate Legend Symbol descriptions via a text field in the layer's attribute table?

 

or

 

Populate Legend Symbol descriptions via arcpy individually?  I cant populate the entire set of symbols as they are already set in the mxd doc.  I just need to be able to populate descriptions for these "wild card" symbols.

 

Thanks.
