Hi Experts:

    I am using ArcGIS 9.2 and I have a UI tool with VBA code underlying. This tool reads the map coordinate when I click on the map.
    Because VBA is going be decommissioned in some future version of ArcGIS, I am finding an alternative way to implement the UI tool. Is Python scripting an option to implement it?
    I currently don't know whether there is any method to hook the Python script with the map and the UI controlls in ArcMap. Can you give some suggestion?
    I want to avoid using ArcObjects extension written in .NET, because going that route will cause packaging and deployment process in my organization.
    Any opinion will be apprieciated.
    Thank you.
