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. The final keyword can also be added to the class declaration preventing it from being extended.
