I'm trying to find out if there is a simple way to find out what layers 
and Shapes are in the current extent. The question may be silly because 
I can do query by rectancle with the current extent but the 
functionality is already in mapscript and get used when querying by 

I'm going to use a context sensitiv legend. I only want to see the 
Layers which are in the current extent and also only the displayed 
classes of each layer.

I can write that my own but if I could get from the mapobj it would sure 
be better for the performance.

Ideas are appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
