Setting custom papersize

I need to print on labels of different sizes, sizes that are not defined as standard by NT, on a 24pin matrix printer, so I need to set the size of the paper to fit, so the printer doesn't feed a mile after the label.

I realize that this is done using the DEVMODE structure together with ResetDC() or CreateDC(), but when I do so, I don't get the paper size changed, in fact nothing goes wrong, it just doesn't change anything, what are the correct steps to take to set the paper size, ie what fields must be filled and can a poorly written driver refuse to set the paper size (the printer is a panasonic kxp-1123, using the M$ std driver)

Is it because of this?

If that is not the problem, post your code where you try to set the size, so we can see it.

well, Chensu, that was a most exelent answer, short, exact and usable, if I could I would give you an pow(A,2) but the grade scale here is incapable of handling your enormous wit.
Thank you for your speedy answer.
