Is there a way to simulate recalculating the extent of a feature class in arcpy?
This is needed, for example, after adding or deleting features as the extent isn't automatically reboxed.
I've searched the forums, and I know it can easily be done manually in ArcCatalog, and I found some examples using arcobjects.
Nothing for arcpy so far.
