thanks angus_young_acdc
hmm these links (1 & 2) do mention how to set up the print settings, how i'm a little confused on how to execute the paper size.
for example, ideally i would have a combo box with A4, A6...selecting either and hitting print would then perform the print to the paper size.
link 2 seems close, but as i said..not sure how i actually execute the selected paper size.

Within link one:
    e.Graphics.MeasureString(_text.Substring(RemoveZeros(curChar)), PrinterFont, new SizeF(printWidth, printHeight), format, out chars, out lines);  
 
    //Print the page  
    e.Graphics.DrawString(_text.Substring(RemoveZeros(curChar)), PrinterFont, Brushes.Black, printArea, format);  

And your printWidth and printHeight would be set as whatever the size of the combo box was.  EG the pseudo code:
if ComboBox value == A4
printHeight = 200;
printWidth = 75;

use the code like this
the following line configures page size to A4 similarly you can set it to something else
printDocument.DefaultPageSettings.PaperSize= new System.Drawing.Printing.PaperSize("PaperA4",826,1169);
this i found from following link
http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=357725


to find what all page sizes are supported by the printer you can refer to the following link
