I'm creating a page showing all items from a list. I have enabled versioning for that list. So I want to show the list of all items, even pending items, when a user with contribute permissions is logged in.

DataTable dtserviceDetailsItems = serviceDetailsList.Items.GetDataTable();

How to do that?

Got the solution :)

            using (SPSite site = new SPSite(siteId))
                thisWeb = site.OpenWeb();
                SPList serviceDetailsList = thisWeb.Lists["Service Details"];
                if (serviceDetailsList.Items.Count > 0)
                    DataTable dtserviceDetailsItems = serviceDetailsList.GetItems().GetDataTable();
                    dtserviceDetailsItems.Columns.Add("Profile", typeof(string));
                    dtserviceDetailsItems.Columns.Add("Topic", typeof(string));
                    gvServices.DataSource = GetSortedData(dtserviceDetailsItems, gvSortExpression, gvSortDirection);

using SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate() {}
