    Your question seems out of context. Can you describe, in relation to intended magento functionality, what you intend to do, then maybe someone can help you. – ProxiBlue Sep 24 '14 at 4:46

Have a look at Zend_Controller_Request_Http were the isPost() method is found and you will see the method is as follows:

public function isPost()
    if ('POST' == $this->getMethod()) {
        return true;

    return false;

and getMethod() is:

public function getMethod()
    return $this->getServer('REQUEST_METHOD');

So isPost() doesn't look for the existence of data in the $_POST array to detect a POST request, it looks at the $_SERVER variable REQUEST_METHOD.

  • For me worked $this->getRequest()->getServer('REQUEST_METHOD'); Thanks! – Albeis Jul 24 '18 at 7:37
