Hello Jack,

I also need some information that i think you have the ability and the knowledge to answer me, allow me to ask you several questions.

I am developing a point of sale using and mysql however i do not know which thermal printer for POS i should use, i do not want to use dos commands cause i do not have knowledge about that.

Do you have any idea which Thermal printer will work best for me using 2008 and mysql, XP/Windows 7?

if i will use EPSON TM-U220 for my POS system what driver should i use? and do you have sample codes for me to start with?

thank you

Hi, here is some sample code:

All receipt printers are the same, as long as you have a driver that Windows 7 supports, you can use it to print anything you want.. You just have to format the printing using the print preview control via trial and error to get what you really want on the paper
