Looking for options:

I want to set it up so that when a person attaches a document to an event of a calendar list that the title of said event will be modified with an indicator to show that a file has been attached. Any ideas are appreciated.

I'm not sure, but can you try to use this technic to customize view?

I ended up creating a column called attached indicator that was set through a workflow that had the following code in the onWorkflowActivated_Invoked

private void onWorkflowActivated1_Invoked(object sender, ExternalDataEventArgs e)
        SPListItem item = workflowProperties.Item;

        if (item.Attachments.Count > 0)
            item["AttachmentIndicator"] = "inline";
            item["AttachmentIndicator"] = "none";

The value of the AttachmentIndicator was used in a calculated column called Display with an tag. It set the display CSS style on the tag.
