Can You please send me the code to open the Cash Drawer for VB if you have one working for you.

I am using the TM-U295 Printer and Xc19 Cash Drawer.

I tried different ESC Sequences like

MSComm1.Output = Chr$(&H1B) + "p" + "0" + "zz"
MSComm1.Output = Chr$(&H1B) + "p" + Chr$(0) + Chr$(100) + Chr$(250)
MSComm1.Output = Chr$(27) & Chr$(112) & Chr$(0) & Chr$(25) & Chr$(250)
MSComm1.Output = Chr$(27)& Chr$(112) & Chr$(48) & Chr$(55) & Chr$(121)
MSComm1.Output = Chr(27) + Chr(33) + Chr(1) + Chr(112) ' + Chr(0)

None of the Above Worked for me.

Please reply ASAP.

Thanx in Advance.
