Use page layout controls

This sample application contains two PageLayout controls. The Browse dialog allows you to search and select map documents, which are validated and loaded into the main PageLayout control, triggering the OnPageLayoutReplaced event. The OnPageLayoutReplaced event determines the MxPath property of the main PageLayout control and uses it to load the same document into the second PageLayout control with the LoadMxFile method.
The OnExtentUpdated event is triggered when you zoom in on the main PageLayoutControl. The event uses the AddElement method to add an element displaying the visible extent of the main PageLayout control on the second PageLayout control. Previous elements on the second PageLayout control are found using the FindElementByName method and are deleted from the GraphicsContainer. The Refresh method is used to refresh the graphics to reflect the changes.
