4.4.7 Final

since Haxe 4.0.0

The final keyword can be used on class fields with the following effects:

  • final function ... to make a function non-overridable in subclasses.
  • final x = ... to declare a constant that must be initialized immediately or in the constructor and cannot be written to.
  • inline final x = ... is the same but inlines the value wherever it is used. Only constant values can be assigned.

static final fields must be initialized immediately by providing an expression. If a class has non-static final variables which are not initialized immediately, it requires a constructor which has to assign values to all such fields. final does not affect visibility and it is not supported on properties.
