I would suggest that you wouldn't really want an auto eject at the end of a DVD as the credits take several minutes to expire and the DVD footage to actually come to an end.
If you don't want to wait until the credits have finished, you can always click the "Stop Playback" button in VLC's Controls before using whichever means of ejecting the DVD you prefer.

I read it that he wanted auto eject without any input from himself which was why I suggested he may want to think about that which is really only useful if you walk off and leave it playing but then many players will auto-close again if the disc is not removed within a certain time.

The methods I mention should eject without having to first stop the playback.

I think we each interpreted this

Once a DVD has finished is there a control on the VLC player to eject the DVD?
differently. I've used those methods to eject DVDs, but I always stop them first if they haven't reached the end of the credit listings, even if it's not strictly necessary.

Oh right!

It was just that as previous posts stated that there was no way to eject discs easily in VLC itself and as only alternative ways had been offered the thread read as if there was no real answer apart from Lizzygraham in the second post.

Where there are three methods and the simplest is as mentioned just one taps of the keyboard and a mouse click in VLC will eject the disc but then I did come into the thread late so it's probably all water under the bridge now anyway.

The methods we've usually use are the ones in post #2 and #5 - the latter if we close VLC before remembering to eject the disc. It would be nice if there was a setting by which you could set VLC to eject a DVD/CD when it's finished; it would be even nicer it you could set it to put the disc back in its case. As far as using the keyboard is concerned for controlling the functions of a DVD, I'm usually sitting away from the PC and cannot get to it quickly.
