Remarks

The FrameElement object is a basic element typcially used for neatlines on the PageLayout .  Use this object when you wish to add a neatline to your page layout.

Geometry: FrameElement 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.
