This is the class used together with wx.adv.ShowTip function.

It must implement wx.adv.TipProvider.GetTip function and return the current tip from it (different tip each time it is called).

You will never use this class yourself, but you need it to show startup tips with ShowTip. Also, if you want to get the tips text from elsewhere than a simple text file, you will want to derive a new class from wx.adv.TipProvider and use it instead of the one returned by wx.adv.CreateFileTipProvider .
