Thanks Jeff –

But those apply to ArcGIS Desktop and ArcPy.mapping.

Looking for the equivalents in ArcGIS Pro and ArcPy.mp.

Thanks again.

Yes there is.

There's the getSelectedExtent method for a Layer<http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/Layer/00s300000008000000/>:
·  getExtent ({symbolized_extent}) - Returns a layer's geometric or symbolized extent
·  getSelectedExtent ({symbolized_extent}) - Returns a layer's geometric or symbolized extent for selected features
A getSelectedExtent method <http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/DataFrame/00s300000003000000/> Dataframe<http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/DataFrame/00s300000003000000/>:
·  panToExtent (extent) - Pans and centers the data frame extent using a new Extent object without changing the data frame's scale
·  zoomToSelectedFeatures () - Changes the data frame extent to match the extent of the currently selected features for all layers in a data frame
Plus you can try these:
·  df.zoomToSelectedFeatures() - will zoom to the extents of the data frame to all selected features in the map frame
·  lyr.getSelectedExtent() - will zoom to to a selection set for a specific layer

Howdy SHRUG –

Anyone find a way to “zoom Map to the extent of a layer in Arcpy.mp” ?

There are many scenarios where this basic function, zooming to a layer or a selection, would be used, right ?
