Print and send commands to receipt printer

samudebr asked:

Open original thread
Hello to everyone,

I've been searching the net over a week, and I still can figure out how receipt printer works especially how to send commands.

I need to print a receipt to this "PRP-085IIIT" printer. The printer is connected via USB and using a Generic\Text Only driver. Windows 7.

I found this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322091 to send raw data to the printer. I manage to print but I can't cut the page at the end. From what I found, I need to sent command to the printer in order to cut the page. Thats my main problem, I can't figure out how to send command to the printer.

Also I'm using C# to develop my application.

Any kind of help would be appreciated because I'm out of resources.

Thanks a lot for your help.
