Is it possible to reference a variable from Python in a textbox in ArcMap? I found a way to create a label associated with a point. But is it possible to reference a variable in a textbox outside of a data frame? I know data driven pages are not possible via Python.


I still don't know if it is possible. I have my doubts. I created an empty dataframe and then created a single point feature class with no symbology and then simply save my information I want to display in the single point feature class. This way the label doesn't move or at least not very much and it is updated everytime.
