Hi
Iam currently trying to figure out how to kick out a cashdrawer connected to a Epson Parallel printer, the thing is i need to be able to kick the drawer without printing anything. Using commands such as

Printer.FontName = "Control"
Printer.print "A";
Printer.enddoc

Results in paper being feed, which is not very smart if the need to open the drawer say 10 times before actually printing a reciept, so my question is how do i submit the kick drawer command to the printer without triggering the printer driver (which must be the one triggering the feed)

?

>>how to kick out a cashdrawer
Try use mscomm control ? You may try to send 10 "0" to the cashdrawer, like:

...
MSComm1.Output = "0000000000"
...

refer more to your device on what's the exact API/commands to use.
