$input->is() method

Is the current request of the specified type?

This is a more readable/shorter alias of $input->requestMethod('type') for syntax convenience. Internally, it determines the request type without accessing any input data, so it is efficient.

Available since version 3.0.145.


// The following are equivalent:
$isPost = $input->is('post');
$isPost = $input->requestMethod('post');


$bool = $input->is(string $method);



Specify one of: post, get, head, put, delete, options, patch (not case sensitive)

Return value
