Remarks

The MapSurroundFrame object is descended from a FrameElement.  The object contains map surround objects such as north arrows, legends, and scale bars.  The primary interface for MapSurroundFrame is IMapSurroundFrame .
Use this object when you want to manipulate the frames of surround objects such as north arrows, legends and scale bars or get a reference to these objects from their frame.

Geometry: MapSurroundFrame accepts geometry of type esriGeometryEnvelope or esriGeometryPolygon.  If an envelope is passed it, it is converted to a Polygon internally.  The geometry represents the geometry of the frame that is drawn and it is typically a rectangle.
