createCyTableColumn(
  appliesTo,
  name,
  dataType = NULL,
  isList = NULL,
  subnetworkId = NULL
)

Arguments

appliesTo

character; indicates whether this applies to "nodes", "edges" or "networks" table columns

name

character; key of the attribute

dataType

character (optional); data type of the attribute

isList

logical (optional); a value should be considered as list

subnetworkId

integer (optional); reference to subnetwork id, but left blank (or NA) if root-network

Details

Cytoscape contributes aspects that organize subnetworks, attribute tables, and visual attributes for use by its own layout and analysis tools. Furthermore are the aspects used in web-based visualizations like within the NDEx platform.

These elements are used to represent Cytoscape table column labels and types. Its main use is to disambiguate empty table columns. The same attribute can also be defined for different subnetworks with different values. Cytoscape does not currently support table columns for the root network, but this is option is included here for consistency.

With isList it can be set, if a value should be considered as a list. This is of minor significance while working solely with RCX objects, unless it will be transformed to JSON.

Value

CyTableColumnAspect object

## a minimal example
tableColumn = createCyTableColumn(
  appliesTo="nodes",
  name="weight"
)

## defining several properties at once
tableColumn = createCyTableColumn(
  appliesTo=c("nodes","edges"),
  name=c("weight","weight")
)

## with all parameters
tableColumn = createCyTableColumn(
  appliesTo=c("nodes","edges","networks"),
  name=c("weight","weight","collapsed"),
  dataType=c("numeric","numeric","logical"),
  isList=c(FALSE,FALSE,TRUE),
  subnetworkId=c(NA,NA,1)
)
