Escape Sequence in VB

Last Modified: 2008-03-17
How do you issue an Escape Sequence in VB5 to control a printer ? I am trying to issue   ESC "d" 0   to control a paper cutter in a small ticket printer. I have tried   printer.print chr$(27)+chr$(100)+chr$(48)  but the characters "d0" actually got printed out which shouldn't have been and the ESC control code have not functioned. Can anyone help ??
