How to get the background colour of the active (map) view

Probably a rather simple question, but how do you get the background colour of the active view (in map view not layout). I.e. access the "date frame properties", "frame", "background colour". Am exporting the active view from arcmap into a png, but need to know the background colour to state what colour is transparent in the png. For the life of me i cannot work it out.

Any help is much appreciated

Thank You

Alex
