If your Custom Action is in the ExecuteImmediate (EI) sequence, you can use Session.Property("NAME_OF_PROPERTY") to retrieve the value of the property named NAME_OF_PROPERTY. If it's in ExecuteDeferred (ED), you need to get into the mess which is CustomActionData. Basically, in EI, you need to set a property whose name matches the name of the ED Custom Action and assign that property the value you want to pass. The ED Custom Action then accesses the special property CustomActionData.

There's plenty on this latter subject if you search.
