There is no API for doing so. Some folks have found ways by blocking some
events and faking them later. Search around for posts.
i'm having great difficulty finding any relevant info from the forum and the web about accessing preloader variables from the application.
is there a way to access the preloader itself from the application?
It seems logical that the systemManager garbage collects it. If that's the case, how can i access the systemManager from the preloader and possible pass variables to it, then later access them from the application? this seems to be the best direction to tackle this problem. but maybe i'm overlooking another way?
