Hello Smartbear Team,
One more general query from my side .
Is there a library available or some way with which I can integrate the Test complete Tool with the Robot framework or python .
Thanks and regards

As it was mentioned before: "via the https://support.smartbear.com/message/?prod=TestComplete form".
Both TC11 and TC12 support Python scripting and can reuse third-party Python libraries. Several threads were started recently in the Web Testing and Mobile Testing sections or this forum where reuse of third-party Python libraries was discussed.
What integration with Robot do you need? TestComplete has quite sophisticated command line control and also can be controlled via COM. I expect that Robot provides the same possibilities. Does this fit your needs?
Here I need to integrate Testcomplete 11.31 ver with the Robot framework, I was wondering how it can be made possible ... Is there some way or library with the help of which I can fill the gap or directly I can trigger Testcomplete Tool from Robot framework.
Currently I was thinking to make use of either remote swing library or pyautoit tool inorder to integrate the same . Am I going in the right direction , or is there some other way to integrate it .
I have never used COM so far .. may be I will look into it .
Generally Robot framework is a front-end for Selenium (webdriver) tests.
TestComplete also has a builtin feature to run Selenium tests.
I am missing why do you want integrate TC with Robot? What is your idea?
We are using robot framework for our project , now since few Test cases needed Testcomplete tool , because of which we want to make few test cases with Testcomplete and integrate it Robot framework.
Our other cases is already integrated with Robot framework , the one with the Testcomplete need to get integrated with the Robot framework for our project to complete .
That is the reason I was asking , whether there is any library or method with which I can integrate Testcomplete with Robot framework.
Not sure if it's possible like you want.
You need a tool to launch Robot and TC tests separately. Something like Jenkins.
Unless I am missing something...
It is possible to start either complete test project, or some keyword test or some given script routine with the help of TestComplete's command line (https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/working-with/automating/command-line-and-exit-codes/...). In case you need to execute some Test Item(s) from the project, you may use ATR script (https://support.smartbear.com/viewarticle/54655/).
So, the possible approach may be to start TestComplete via command line from your Robot tests, wait until TestComplete ends and continue with Robot.
Does this help?
