Does anyone know how to use Python scripting to get the current visible extent of arcMap? Mostly just need to obtain the min/max X and Y coordinates for the display area. I guess this could also be accomplished by drawing a rectangle to the size of the viewable area and then reading the properties of the rectangle afterward.
