How can I check if request was a POST or GET request in Symfony2

I just wondered if there is a very easy way (best: a simple

$this->container->isGet()
I can call) to determine whether the request is a
$_POST
or a
$_GET
request.

According to the docs,


A Request object holds information about the client request. This
information can be accessed via several public properties:


  • request
    : equivalent of
    $_POST
    ;

  • query
    : equivalent of
    $_GET
    (
    $request->query->get('name')
    );




But I won't be able to use
if($request->request)
or
if($request->query)
to check, because both are existing attributes in the Request class.

So I was wondering of Symfony offers something like the

$this->container->isGet();
// or isQuery() or isPost() or isRequest();


mentioned above?

Answer

If you want to do it in controller,

$this->getRequest()->isMethod('GET');

or in your model (service), inject or pass the Request object to your model first, then do the same like the above.
