I'm running into an issue with a client who doesn't like her multiple lines of text fields getting truncated on the version history page of a list. She has a field for comments and would like to see the entirety of a version's comments.
I've found that the page uses: itemcurr.GetTruncatedFieldValueAsHtml(field),Response.Output
I want to replace that line with: itemcurr.GetFieldValueAsHtml(field),Response.Output
So, here are my questions/concerns:
- Can I just make this simple change and have it propagate to all lists?
- I know it isn't supported to make modifications in this way but beyond possibly breaking my customization after a patch, is there any harm in this?
- Is there a better way to expand the truncated field without having to resort to custom pages, custom js and method overrides?
