Error Dialog Box for Serial Communication

3 views (last 30 days)
Hi all, is that any possible way to display the error dialog box whenever the desired port to be connected is currently not available.
Currently my code is write as following which will connect the 'COM6' directly when the button callback. I wish to write it in such a way, if the 'COM6' is currently no available, it will display an error message. Any solution to do so? Thanks you.
instrreset;
s_port=serial('COM6','BaudRate',115200,'Parity','none'...
,'DataBits',8,'FlowControl','none');
set(s_port,'InputBufferSize',11,'OutputBufferSize',11,'Timeout',1);
fopen(s_port);
fprintf(s_port,'s');
fgetl('%s',s_port);
fclose(s_port);

Unfortunately the documentation of serial does not explain what happens, if the port cannot be opened. Therefore I guess:
try
s_port=serial('COM6','BaudRate',115200,'Parity','none', ...
'DataBits',8,'FlowControl','none');
catch
errordlg(...)
return;
end
Or:
s_port = serial('COM6','BaudRate',115200,'Parity','none', ...
'DataBits',8,'FlowControl','none');
if isempty(s_port) % or what ever, please simply test this
errordlg(...)
return;
end
