Which version of Sharepoint?

If you are using v1 then you need to look at the DDSC - Digital

as ICellProvider/ICellConsumer, IRowProvider/IRowConsumer or
IFilterProvider/IFilterConsumer and IParametersOutProvider/Consumer or
IParametersInProvider/Consumer. These interfaces allow the web part  to

It is v2 -- I am using the communcation interfaces now, but this is
for a different purpose. Let me explain what our users want to do.

As we all know, each web  part has custom properties  that can be set.
Lets say I have 10 web parts  that returns data based on a users
search and custom properties they have set on specific web parts.

They want the ability to now save this is a "favoriate" query. My
idea was to create  a "Favoriates Web Parts" that will give them the
ability to quickly load and save custom properties on different web
parts so they can perform quick searches without going to each of the
10 web parts to set the custom properties.

Some people say I might have to use the sharepoint object model for
this, but the documentation is lacking.

Perhaps someone else has a different idea.
