QueryOutline returns a polygon representing the outline of the element.  A valid polygon object must be passed in to the method along with the current display.  The method then updates the polygon object.  The results for point and line elements will be similar to the minimum bounding envelope returned by QueryBounds, while the results for polygon elements while be the actual outline of the element (not the bounding envelope).
