I have a web part that will render an existing report on Report Server. The way I found to do this, is to render the report in a App Part using <iframe/> and then reference the App Part in a web part using <Content Type="html" Src="~appWebUrl/Pages/Default.aspx" />. However I will need to access the web part properties from the javascript. I'm trying to see if this is possible by using this function with a breakpoint on the 3rd line just to check if we were able to pull the properties:

function getWebPartProperties() {
    var object = $('#gordoWebPart');
    var properties = object.get_properties();
    var properties2 = object.get_properties();

And I'm referencing this script in my App Part using <script type="text/javascript" src="../Scripts/App.js"></script>. The problem is that even though I can see the App.js loaded in my App Part (using IE developer tools), I can't see the script loaded on my web part.

Am I registering the script in the wrong way? How should I approach this?

You need to use querystrings to get the webpart properties, as used in this example:

<Content Src="~remoteAppUrl/AppPartContent.html?strProp=_strProp_&amp;intProp=_intProp_&amp;boolProp=_boolProp_&amp;enumProp=_enumProp_"

Then you can get that from your javascript: http://www.joezimjs.com/javascript/3-ways-to-parse-a-query-string-in-a-url/

Have a look at this article, I have extracted the code from there: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/fp179921(v=office.15).aspx
