Sorry, I wasn't clear.
I want to get those properties from a global event handler (when the user changes a setting).
My web part has 4 path selectors, which allows the user to select a document.
If the user enables a certain setting key, I want to move the selected documents to a different path, and update the selected paths.
I have the widget set up already, and I know how to get/set it's properties from the web part code, but not from outside it.
I'm guessing I need to get the template info, then the web part zone, which I did, but I'm stuck at this stage.
