Manage serial port with a button

Hi everyone,
i’m new with node red, and i need your help please,
i want to control the serial port using a button, that’s mean that when i want to close the serial port, i click on the button,
is it realistic?

Not currently. The serial port is designed to try to stay connected.

I have need to disconnect a device while Node-RED is running. Otherwise, I'll need to shut down Node-RED in order to connect my serial scanner to configuration software and re-start Node-RED. Is it possible to allow the serial node to programmatically disconnect for a time to allow this kind of feature? I agree the normal mode would be to try to connect and stay connected. However, all devices and all applications do not follow trying to stay connected to Node-RED. We are using Windows 10 and it will be unhandy to physically disconnect the device and connect to another system just to configure it.

Kind Regards,

No. It is still not possible.
