#' Cytoscape hidden attributes
#' 
#' This function is used to create Cytoscape hidden attributes aspects.
#' 
#' @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.
#'  
#' Besides network attributes, networks may have additional describing attributes originated from and used by Cytoscape.
#' They are also defined in a key-value like manner, with the name of the attribute as key. 
#' The same attribute can also be defined for different [subnetworks][CySubNetworks] with different values. 
#' The values itself may differ in their data types, therefore it is necessary to provide the values as a list of the single values 
#' instead of a vector.
#' 
#' 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][RCX-object] objects, unless it will be transformed to JSON. For some attributes it might be necessary that the values are encoded as
#' lists, even if they contain only one element (or even zero elements). To force an element to be encoded correctly, this parameter can 
#' be used, for example: `name="A", value=a, isList=T` will be encoded in JSON as `A=["a"]`.
#' 
#' @param name character; key of the attribute
#' @param value character or list of character; value of the attribute
#' @param dataType character (optional); data type of the attribute
#' @param isList logical (optional); a value should be considered as list
#' @param subnetworkId integer (optional); refers to the IDs of a subnetwork aspect, but left blank (or `NA`) if root-network
#'
#' @return *`r .CLS$cyHiddenAttributes`* object
#' @seealso \code{\link{updateCyHiddenAttributes}};
#' @export
#' @name CyHiddenAttributes

#' @example man-roxygen-examples/cy-hidden-attributes-create.R

#' Update Cytoscape hidden attributes
#' 
#' This functions add hidden attributes in the form of a \code{\link{CyHiddenAttributes}} object to an other \code{\link{CyHiddenAttributes}} or an
#' [RCX][RCX-object] object.
#' 
#' @details 
#' Cytoscape subnetworks allow to group a set of nodes and corresponding edges together, and network relations define the relations between those
#' networks.
#' \code{\link{CyHiddenAttributes}} objects can be added to an [RCX][RCX-object] or an other \code{\link{CyHiddenAttributes}} object.
#' 
#' In the case, that a \code{\link{CyHiddenAttributes}} object is added to an other, or the [RCX][RCX-object] object already contains a 
#' \code{\link{CyHiddenAttributes}} object, some attributes might be present in both. By default, the attributes are updated with the values
#' of the latest one. This can prevented by setting the *replace* parameter to `FALSE`, in that case only new attributes are added and 
#' the existing attributes remain untouched.
#' 
#' Furthermore, if duplicated attributes are considered as a preventable mistake, an error can be raised by setting *stopOnDuplicates* 
#' to `TRUE`. This forces the function to stop and raise an error, if duplicated attributes are present.
#'
#' @param x [RCX][RCX-object] or \code{\link{CyHiddenAttributes}} object; (to which the new hidden attributes will be added)
#' @param hiddenAttributes \code{\link{CyHiddenAttributes}} object; (the new aspect, that will be added)
#' @param ... additional parameters
#' @param replace logical; if existing values are updated (or ignored)
#' @param stopOnDuplicates logical; whether to stop, if duplicates in `name` (and `subnetworkId` if present) column are found
#' @param checkReferences logical; whether to check if references to other aspects are present in the [RCX][RCX-object] object
#' 
#' @return \code{\link{CyHiddenAttributes}} or [RCX][RCX-object] object with added hidden attributes
