Event type field does not show in describeSObject() API call

In my developer account an Event object has a "Type" field, which is a pick list.  This fields comes by default as part of the standard Event object.  However, the field is "hidden" for all profiles.

What is the purpose of the field?

Why is it hidden by default?

Why can't I set the value of the field via the create() API.



Hi TKDude,

I'm not sure why it's hidden.  You can certainly unhide it and not put it on any layouts to use though.
