getVariants() -- how are the matching candidates found

I got this working most time by return PsiElement or Strings.
But still the internal matchign algorithm is hidden.
Having an reference I return both, a member field and a constant.
public String field1;
public static final String constant1="";
in getVariants() I return both fields.
But the popup for auto-completion only shows the members. So the
static stuff is somehow filtered out.
Same applies to static methods.

So how do I get this working?

What is the prefix for the completion?

Any comments?
I have installed an own CompletionData which derives from
HtmlCompletionData. So from debugging I know that
findPrefix() returns "".

Hi,

Maybe your settings have not set 'Show statics after instance'
completion option and completion filters it out then (pretty weird side
effect for custom completion data).

Yes, that's it. But why is it applied? It always occurs, no matter
if there is a dot in front of it or if the previous expression just
resolves to PsiClass.
How can I change this behaviour?
I remember having seen some event somewhere. But don't remember where
and don't know how to fire.
