The TipsQuery is a label which displays the tooltips of the widgets the mouse hovers. First it has to be activated with start_query() : The mouse cursor changes and the label comes to life, displaying the tooltips of the hovering widget. The query is automatically deactivated when the user clicks somewhere.

With the help of the "widget_entered" signal, one could display a small tool tip showing the extendet data of a tooltip or call a help browser. For this purpose, the private (extendet) tooltip data could contain location of the page the help browser should display.
