I'm writing something which prints out  a docket on an Epson M239C Thermal Docket Printer.

I'm using C# to write the app & the System.Drawing.PrintDocument to handle most of the printing functionality.

I can't figure out for the life of me how I tell the printer to automatically cut the docket off with it's automatic cutter.

Any ideas?

Well, for a docket printer, I'd focus more on the POS stuff - see http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/ccl/html/T_Microsoft_PointOfService_PosPrinter.asp since the posprinter is really the object you should be working with. AFAIK, it's very difficult to send escape sequences directly to the PrintDocument, and that's the vert functionality that the posprinter provides.
