The Attachments related list isn't showing up, what am i missing here?

<apex:page standardController="Event" extensions="EventExtension" tabStyle="Event" standardStylesheets="true" showHeader="true">
    <apex:sectionHeader title="Calendar" subtitle="{!IF(ISNULL(Event.Subject),'New Event',Event.Subject)}" />
    <apex:form >
    <apex:pageBlock title="Event Edit" mode="edit" tabStyle="Event" >

        <apex:pageBlockButtons >
            <apex:commandButton value="Save" action="{!saveEvent}" />  
            <apex:commandButton value="Save& New Task" action="{!saveAndNewTask}"/>    
            <apex:commandButton value="Save& New Event" action="{!saveAndNewEvent}"/>                  
            <apex:commandButton value="Cancel" action="{!cancel}" immediate="true" />                   

        <apex:pageBlockSection title="Calendar Details" columns="2">

   <apex:relatedList id="noteslist" list="NotesAndAttachments" subject="{!Event.id}" />
  • Your code works for me. Is it something like Notes and Attachments are not enabled for Events (which would be bizarre)? – Scott Pelak Jun 21 '13 at 16:43
  • @amtorVitae when you go to setup--> develope --> API and click on Enterprise are you able to see notesandattachments related event parent objecT? – Rao Jun 21 '13 at 16:59

Try using list="Attachments" instead of list="NotesAndAttachments".

<apex:relatedList list="Attachments"  subject="{!$CurrentPage.parameters.id}" />

This sample is working fine for me.

<apex:page standardController="Event">
  <apex:detail relatedList="false"/>
  <apex:relatedList list="Attachments"  subject="{!$CurrentPage.parameters.id}" />

Extra Info

I don't know why but Event seams not to be related to Notes.

I've used this snipped to check:

Schema.DescribeSObjectResult d = Event.sObjectType.getDescribe();
List<Schema.ChildRelationship> relationships = d.getChildRelationships();

String listOfRelationshipNames = '';
for(Schema.ChildRelationship rel:relationships){
    listOfRelationshipNames = listOfRelationshipNames + rel.getRelationshipName() + ', ';


and this are the Event relationships:

USER_DEBUG [9]|DEBUG|Attachments, null, null, FeedSubscriptionsForEntity, RecurringEvents, Feeds, EventRelations, null, null,

    Awesome, I was going to the Enterprise WSDL and looking for the exact name for notesandattachments, it does say "Attachments" – Rao Jun 21 '13 at 17:07

The relationship name for the Notes and Attachments related list has been changed in winter 14 release.

<apex:relatedList subject="{!account}"  list="CombinedAttachments" />

Based on the following link: https://developer.salesforce.com/forums/ForumsMain?id=906F00000008rzSIAQ

+1 for Martin's answer , always a better idea to look at the enterprise WSDL since it is readily available with the current updated schema and easy to access

    <complexType name="Event">
<complexContent><extension base="ens:sObject">
<sequence><element name="Account" nillable="true" minOccurs="0" type="ens:Account"/><element name="AccountId" nillable="true" minOccurs="0" type="tns:ID"/>
<element name="ActivityDate" nillable="true" minOccurs="0" type="xsd:date"/>
<element name="ActivityDateTime" nillable="true" minOccurs="0" type="xsd:dateTime"/>

<element name="Attachments" nillable="true" minOccurs="0" type="tns:QueryResult"/>
